Ankara will never stop supporting the Palestinian cause, the Turkish foreign minister said on Tuesday.
Axar.az reports that this was reported by Turkish media.
"Under the leadership of our president, and with the power vested in us by our parliament, we will never give up supporting the Palestinian cause," Mevlut Cavusoglu told lawmakers in parliament.
"Turkey is pioneering diplomatic efforts on the Palestine issue and will continue to be the voice of conscience and justice in the world," he said.
Asserting that the atmosphere in Turkey on the Palestine issue was one of joint solidarity, Cavusoglu said: "We need to be sensitive on preserving this."
"It is the duty of all of us to be careful not to carry this issue into the competitive language of domestic politics and not to make oppressed people happy who have the same mentality with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu," he said.
He said that the international community's reaction to Israel's attacks on Palestine was "weak" and added that some countries had "closed their eyes to the war crimes" committed by Tel Aviv as they "put Israel's security first."
