Top business news | Erdogan pledges to continue supporting Palestinians

The president of Turkey claims that Ankara's support for the Palestinian cause would not be weakened by his nation's rapprochement with Israel.


Turkey's efforts to make peace with Israel won't in any way lessen Ankara's support for the Palestinian cause, the Turkish president said on Tuesday.


During the arrival of Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made the remarks. Just one week after Israel and Turkey declared their decision to resume full diplomatic relations and re-appoint ambassadors for the first time since 2018, the Palestinian leader landed in Ankara.


The changes made to our relations with Israel won't have any impact on our continued support for the Palestinian cause, according to Erdogan. The opposite is also expressed by our Palestinian brothers, who believe that these actions will help find a solution to the Palestinian problem and better the lot of the Palestinian people.

Although Abbas didn't explicitly address the warming relations between Israel and Turkey, he did thank Turkey for its "unwavering" support of the Palestinians.


Abbas stated, "We are aware of their support for their genuinely earned freedom, independence, and rights. We are aware that Turkey and its institutions support the Palestinian people and their state internationally and stand by them in all matters.


In the most recent development in months of peace between the two nations, Israel and Turkey declared last week that they were reestablishing full diplomatic relations.

Israel and Turkey were previously strong regional allies, but under Erdogan, who has been a vocal opponent of Israel's treatment of the Palestinians, the alliance fell apart. Israel has reacted negatively to Turkey's acceptance of Hamas, the Palestinian militant organization that controls the Gaza Strip.


After Israeli commandos stormed a Gaza-bound flotilla delivering aid for Palestinians that breached an Israeli blockade, the two nations recalled their respective ambassadors in 2010. Nine Turkish activists died as a result of the incident.


Turkey recalled its ambassador once more in 2018 following an effort to improve relations after the US moved its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Mevlut Cavusoglu, the foreign minister of Turkey, stated earlier on Tuesday that the Palestinians have no objections to Turkey and Israel's relations getting better.


According to Cavusoglu, "the dialogue (with Israel) would enable us to better defend the Palestinians," he said in an interview with Haber Global television. "They claim as much themselves. “


He declared, "The actions we are taking do not imply that Turkey will make compromises.


A new ambassador would soon be selected, according to Cavusoglu.
