Erdogan: Relations with Israel Didn’t Stop, Hopes to Improve Them
Erdogan answered a question during Friday prayers this week regarding the possibility of continuing relations with Israel
Ankara – Erdogan answered a question during Friday prayers this week regarding the possibility of continuing relations with Israel, to which he replied that the two countries have always shared intelligence.
The Turkish President also added, saying: “If there were no issues at the top level (in Israel), our ties could have been very different, we would have liked to bring our ties to a better point.”
After the Friday prayers, Erdogan told reporters that it is Israel’s policies towards Palestinians that are a “red line” and that their “merciless acts” are unacceptable.
According to the Jerusalem Post, Netanyahu said last February that even though Turkish officials call him “Hitler” every three or six hours, relations between the two countries are going well, and trade is going up.
