Turkish president warns Israel
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
Israel risks turning into a complete apartheid regime, Gül said.
Turkish President Abdullah Gül warned Israel yesterday to watch and analyze the political climate in the region carefully.
Gül addressed a group of ranking officers at the War Academy in Istanbul.
“Democracy will sooner or later prevail in the region and a democratic regime cannot implement a foreign policy deemed by its own people as unjust, inglorious and humiliating,” he said.
“Israel will turn into a complete apartheid regime in the next 50 years if it does not allow for the establishment of an independent and proud Palestinian state with its capital in east Jerusalem. That is why we are exerting efforts to achieve a fair peace with a strategic point of view, which is to Israel’s own interests,” Gül said.
