Ankara will pursue normalized ties with Israel in coordination with Palestinian Authority, says foreign minister Cavusoglu.
Turkiye will continue to stand by the Palestinian people for independent and sovereign Palestine, the country’s foreign minister said on Tuesday.
Speaking at a joint news conference with his Palestinian counterpart Riyad al-Maliki in the West Bank city of Ramallah, Mevlut Cavusoglu said Turkiye will pursue normalized ties with Israel in coordination with the Palestinian Authority.
„Our support for the Palestinian cause is completely independent of our ties with Israel, but I would like to say that our Palestine policy cannot be changed,” Cavusoglu stressed.
He pointed out that preserving the status and sanctity of the Masjid al-Aqsa is important for all Muslims.
„On this occasion, we wish Allah’s mercy once again to all our Palestinian brothers and sisters who lost their lives,” Cavusoglu added.
Cavusoglu also said relevant ministers of Turkiye and Palestine will meet on June 29-30 to discuss the bilateral economic ties.
