Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has rejected an apology from the NATO after his name appeared on an enemy poster at a military drill.

In a television speech Erdogan said you have seen the disrespectful behavior at the NATO drill yesterday.

There are some mistakes that are done not by fools but only by base people.

He said this matter cannot be covered over with a simple apology.

Erdogan said that Turkey was pulling 40 soldiers out of a NATO exercise in Norway, after his name appeared in a list of enemies on a poster at the drill. NATO and Oslo have since apologized.
