Erdogan Says Turkey Interested in Improving Relations with Israel
Turkey would like better ties with Israel, but claims its policy towards the Palestinians remains “unacceptable,” President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday, adding that talks at the intelligence level are continuing between the two sides.
Turkey has been condemned by the US for hosting senior Hamas terrorists twice this year, and Ankara’s ruling party often compares Israel to Nazi Germany.
Turkey and Israel, once allies, have had a bitter falling out in recent years. Ankara, which illegally occupies northern Syria and persecutes Kurds, has repeatedly condemned Israel’s “occupation” of the West Bank and its treatment of Palestinians. (JPost / VFI News)
