Erdogan says everyone should respect Turkish vote outcome

ISTANBUL, April 16 (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday that everyone including Turkey's allies should respect the outcome of a referendum in which a narrow majority of Turks voted for constitutional changes that will hand him sweeping new powers.
