Ankara: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Wednesday launched a new attack on the European Union over its condemnation of raids on opposition media, saying that Brussels had no right to give Ankara a "democracy lesson".

"They say they will give a democracy lesson to Turkey. Take the trouble to come here, so that Turkey can give you a lesson in democracy," a combative Erdogan said in a speech in the central Anatolian city of Konya. He told Brussels to "look in the mirror" in its dealings with Egypt and Syria in particular and said Turkey would never be the EU`s "doorman".
