Erdogan says Russia had ' to do with' Poland explosions

- Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that he respects Russia's statement that Russian missiles had hit Polish territory, adding that he believes Moscow had " to do with it."

"Russia saying this has to do with them and (U.S. President Joe) Biden saying these missiles are Russian-made show that this has to do with Russia," Erdogan said at a conference during the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia.

Erdogan said the situation to be investigated and that he will speak with Russian President Vladimir Putin when he returns to Turkey.
