Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has reportedly rejected the resignation of his one of his ministers, the interior minister, who had said he would quit after a much-criticized weekend curfew to tackle the coronavirus outbreak which caught millions of people by surprise.

“In a process carried out diligently and meticulously, the responsibility for all implementation of the weekend curfew to stem the pandemic falls on me in every respect,” Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said on Twitter on Sunday evening.

“Although in a limited period of time, the incidents that occurred ahead of the implementation of the curfew was not befitting with the perfect management of the outbreak process,” Soylu said.
