Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has refuted accusations against Ankara about buying oil from the terrorists of the organization “Islamic state”. The Turkish leader said that, in his opinion, deals with ISIS occur with the Syrian leader Bashar Assad.

“Those who accuse us in buying oil from Islamic State, let them prove it. If you are looking for a source of funding for ISIS, then the first place to look is in the direction of the Assad regime and those who support it”, — quotes RIA Novosti from words of Erdogan.
