Turkey has lost control of its borders by opening them to Syrian refugees and been isolated on the world stage by meddling in the affairs of its neighbors, its main opposition leader said in an interview.Kemal Kilicdaroglu, head of the secularist Republican People's Party (CHP), said Turkey's support for what he described as radical opposition groups in Syria had broken a tradition of neutrality and left Turkey exposed.Under Erdogan's Islamist-rooted AK Party, Turkey has become one of Syrian President Bashar Assad's fiercest critics, pushing for his ouster, allowing the political opposition to organize on its soil and opening its border to refugees.Syria and some of Turkey's Western allies say Turkey, in its haste to see Assad toppled, allowed fighters and arms across who went on to join the ranks of ISIS.
