Erdogan's comments came as a reaction after five Turkish soldiers were killed in a tank that was destroyed by an antitank missile while fighting in Syria's Afrin district against a Kurd movement which is incidentally supported by the US Army in the fight against ISIS.

The incident has already been criticized by the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) that opposes Ankara's operation in the Afrin region.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan speaks to members of his ruling party on Saturday. We have our maroon berets as well, but maroon berets never cry.

Mr Erdogan kissed the girl on both cheeks as she stood crying on the stage.

Russian TV network RT called Erdogan's remarks "a weird act of patriotism".

Ilham Aliyev congratulated President Erdogan on his birthday, and wished him success in his activity for the prosperity of Turkey.

But after watching " Black Panther ", I couldn't help but have a renewed desire to visit the Motherland again. The Black Panther premiered in Hollywood on 29th January 2018, and other parts of the world followed.

When Erdogan saw the girl was sobbing, he said, "Look what you see here!"

Mr. Erdogan recently made an alliance with the right-wing Nationalist Movement Party to bolster his chances for coming elections and has used the military campaign to improve his stance with nationalists.

Children have been increasingly spotted at Turkish nationalist events.

"While Turkish news agencies focused on the girl's emotions - portraying her as courageous and resolute - some online commentators called the use of such a young child as a political prop inappropriate", writes the New York Times, which identifies the girl as a first-grader named Amine Tiras.

"Oh my God, I am shocked", one Twitter user posted, according to the paper.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan last weekend raised eyebrows when he called a visibly emotional girl, 6, onstage during a military rally and talked about the possibility of her becoming a martyr. Her lips trembling, she stood ramrod-straight as she gave a military-style salute.
