Türkiye believes that decisions on the issue of severing diplomatic relations with Israel should be collective, Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan said in an interview with Al Jazeera TV channel.
“We considered the issue of severing relations with Israel, but we believe that this should be a collective decision, including with the participation of other Muslim countries,” he noted.
“We do not agree with Washington in its absolute support for Israel and its refusal of a permanent ceasefire. If the US continues to support Israel with continued killings and bombings, this will create a global crisis,” the minister added.
“We refuse to talk about the post-war situation in the Gaza Strip until a ceasefire is achieved,” Fidan said. He also called Hamas "a liberation movement that will be a Palestinian organization along with others when the occupation ends."
