AA photoTurkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said that Turkey and Israel discussed sending an energy ship to Gaza, as relations between two countries enter a phase of normalization after six years.
“We said that we could send a ship to [Israel’s] Ashdod port that can give energy and provide energy from there. They had some hesitations on the ship issue. They suggested to us to build a power plant together with the Germans. I wish that [the issue] would be solved,” Erdoğan said, adding that Gaza’s main problem was energy.
Erdoğan also reminded that Ankara mentioned three conditions in the normalization process with Tel Aviv, namely an apology, compensation and the lifting of the Gaza embargo.
The president said that when issues including energy, water, schools and hospitals were solved, the embargo would be lifted.
