Turkey’s Foreign Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, lashed out at Israel over it’s (in Davutoglu’s opinion) uncompromising stance on key issues of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “Enough is enough. Longer the Palestinian-Israeli issue remained unresolved, greater the price peoples of the region including Turkey pay. Israelis should decide on they want,” Davutoglu told a Washington D.C.-based think thank.
Davutoglu urged Israel to emanate a more positive stance, criticizing its continued construction of settlements in the West Bank, which the international community considers illegal. He went on to criticize the United States, saying: “The U.S. veto on the recognition of Palestine was wrong as was the Russian veto on Syria.”
