Türkiye: The more people recognize the Palestinian state, the more isolated Israel becomes

Istanbul (ANTARA) – Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan said increasing recognition of Palestine as a state would isolate Israel and its allies.

“The growing number of countries that recognize Palestine, especially in Europe, is increasingly isolating Israel and its supporters,” Fidan said at a news conference with Venezuelan Foreign Minister Yvan Gil in Ankara on Thursday.

In the press conference held at the end of the fourth meeting of the Turkey-Venezuela Cooperation Commission, Fidan also reiterated the importance of Palestine receiving legal recognition and called for immediate action to stop the massacres carried out by Israel.

“It is time for the international community to put aside its silence and take measures to stop the genocide committed by the racist and fundamentalist regime of Israel, both at the diplomatic level and through the implementation of the decisions made,” he said.

In his meeting with Gil, Fidan highlighted joint efforts with Venezuela in Gaza and their common position on international platforms.

“We have the same views as Venezuela regarding Gaza,” Fidan said.

“We act the same way. We also take a common position on international platforms. We have decided to continue our joint efforts to stop the massacre in Gaza and recognize the Palestinian state,” he said.

Meanwhile, Gil strongly condemned Israel’s actions in Palestine and described them as “genocide”.

Gil reiterated his country’s position towards Palestine and highlighted the strong and friendly relations between Venezuela and Turkey.

“Venezuela firmly recognizes Palestine as an independent and free country. We oppose the genocide committed against the Palestinian people and demand that they be held accountable for this crime,” Gil said.

He highlighted Venezuela’s long-standing support for Palestinian autonomy and independence.

“We believe that Palestine should be recognized as an autonomous state,” Gil said, calling for international action to ensure justice and peace for Palestine.

Gil also hopes that countries around the world will move to end the violence in Gaza and achieve peace for the Palestinian people.

Israel has continued its brutal attacks on the Gaza Strip since October 7, 2023, despite a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in the enclave.

At least 35,800 Palestinians have been killed, mostly women and children, and more than 80,200 others have been injured since Israel launched a retaliatory attack on the Hamas group last October.

Most of Gaza has been destroyed and Israel has blocked access to food, clean water and medicine.

Israel was accused of genocide by the International Court of Justice, which ordered it to ensure that its forces did not commit such acts and to ensure that humanitarian aid was provided to civilians in Gaza.
