The Turkish foreign minister renewed Wednesday his country's support for an independent and sovereign state of Palestine.

Axar.az informs that Mevlut Cavusoglu marked the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People in a Twitter post.

"On the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, we reiterate our support for an independent and sovereign State of #Palestine within 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital. #Turkey stands with our Palestinian brothers& supports all their efforts for unity," Cavusoglu said.

The International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People is marked each year on Nov. 29 to coincide with the anniversary of UN General Assembly Resolution 181.

Adopted in 1947, Resolution 181 called for the partition of Mandatory Palestine into Jewish and Arab states following the expiry of Britain’s Palestine Mandate.

According to the UN, the day represents "an opportunity for the international community to focus its attention on the fact that the question of Palestine remains unresolved and that the Palestinian people are yet to attain their inalienable rights".
