Israel and Turkey Restore Full Diplomatic Relations Between the 2 Countries…
Well now this is interesting to say the least since Erdogan was in Iran last month meeting with the Iranians and Russia and talking of an alliance of some kind. I do not trust the Turkish Govt. and neither should anyone else. From warnews247, google translated from Greek for your convenience.
A new “page” in Israel-Turkey relations, with the two countries deciding on the full restoration of their diplomatic relations and the return of ambassadors and consuls general from both sides after the steady improvement of bilateral relations.
This was announced today by the office of Prime Minister Yair Lapid, who in a statement emphasizes:
“Upgrading relations will help strengthen ties between the two peoples, expand economic, trade and cultural relations and strengthen regional stability.”
In Ankara, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said after the Israeli announcement that, despite the full restoration of Turkish-Israeli relations, Turkey “will not abandon the Palestinian cause.”
“We will continue to defend the rights of the Palestinians, Jerusalem and Gaza,” Mevlut Cavusoglu said during a press conference in Ankara.
“It is important that our messages [on the Palestinian cause] are conveyed directly through the ambassador,” the Turkish foreign minister added, indirectly confirming the imminent appointment of a Turkish ambassador to Tel Aviv.
After more than a decade of strained relations, Israel and Turkey have in recent months ushered in a new era in their relations marked by the historic visit of Israel’s president, Isaac Herzog, to Ankara in March.
Mevlut Cavusoglu then made a visit to Jerusalem at the end of May as part of the rewarming of bilateral relations.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has cast himself as a champion of the Palestinian cause, has been a fierce critic of Israel’s policies toward the Palestinians.
Turkey maintains close relations with Hamas, which has controlled and ruled the Gaza Strip since 2007.
The deterioration of relations between Ankara and Tel Aviv began in 2010 with the case of the Mavi Marmara ship, when Israeli forces carried out a bloody raid on the Turkish ship that, carrying humanitarian aid, was heading to the Gaza Strip with the aim of breaking the Israeli blockade.
Turkey and Israel recalled their ambassadors to Tel Aviv and Ankara respectively in 2018 after Israeli forces killed 60 Palestinians during protests on the border between Gaza and Israeli territory against the Trump administration’s opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem. Source
