Turkey: 'We cannot be prisoners in 780 sq km' - Erdogan advocates Turkish expansion

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan appeared to advocate the expansion of Turkey's borders during a speech at a memorial ceremony on the 78th death anniversary of First Turkish President Mustafa Kemal Ataturk in the town of Bestepe, on Thursday.
He claimed, "We cannot be prisoners in 780 square kilometres. Because our physical borders are different than the borders of our hearts."
Erdogan went on to say, "Our brothers in Mosul, Kirkuk, Haseke, Aleppo, Homs, Misrata, Skopje, Crimea, and Caucasus may be beyond our physical borders but they are within the frontiers of our hearts and in the very middle of our hearts"
