Billionaire philanthropist George Soros was remembered by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan when a journalist at the Prague Summit questioned him, at a time when he was hand in hand with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.
It all started when Erdoğan was annoyed by the journalist's pressure to get some statement from either him or the Azeri president.
"What's the matter with you my girl? asked the Turkish president. Aliyev intervened and asked "is it ours or yours?", as in whether the journalist was Turkish or Azerbaijani.
The journalist then clarified that she was from Azerbaijan, with Aliyev - after being informed that she works for Azadliq Radio - commenting "she's from Soros!".
An associate of the two presidents who was part of the group that accompanied Erdoğan and Aliyev explained that the particular radio station has ties to George Soros.
"They give a green card to those who work there for five years and a US passport to those who complete ten years of work. They get a passport without any trouble," added the same partner.
Then the following dialogue ensued:
Erdoğan: Don't do that
Journalist: I never do that, I'm a journalist
Erdoğan: Soros always buys journalists
Aliyev: Tell Soros we are brothers here too, we are brothers everywhere (with Erdogan ). No one can disturb our unity.
