Turkey will not ‘turn its back’ on Palestinian cause: Erdogan

Ankara: Saying that Turkey will not “turn its back” on the Palestinian cause or people, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday said that adding that Ankara will share “all means available” for ending the occupation and establishing peace. He told this while speaking at a meeting with the visiting Palestinian members of the Israeli parliament in Istanbul.

Thanking the Knesset members for their service of representing the Palestinian will in Israel’s legislative body against Tel Aviv’s oppression in Gaza as well as its “Jewish State” law and “baseless rhetoric” against Turkey, Erdogan further encouraged the group to work in unity and solidarity.

Erdogan claimed that the controversial law defining Israel as a Jewish state was in open disregard of Palestinian citizen rights.
