He pointed out that “Turkey, located at the crossroads of three continents, is the country most affected by these events. Therefore, she does not have the luxury of shutting herself down, isolating herself from the outside world and observing developments in her region,” emphasizing that “Turkey is making every effort to assume responsibility towards its friends, brothers and citizens in the light of these facts” .

Erdogan said that “his country is pursuing a constructive and active policy in solving global and regional problems”, explaining that “just as we do not look for tension, we do not succumb to pressure.” He noted: “We strongly defend the rights and interests of Turkey in all areas with an honest, patient, firm and wise stance. Turkey has become a diplomatic power whose ideas and recommendations are taken into account in the international arena, and it offers solutions to the problem as a mediator and facilitator.”

On the other hand, he pointed out that “the atmosphere of normalization has begun to strengthen around Turkey in the Middle East”, showing that “our relations with the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Israel are developing on the basis of common interests, and a similar process is taking place with Egypt”, confirming ” the importance we attach to the cause of the Palestinians and that we always support the Palestinian brothers.”
