Ankara To Keep Up Pressure On Israel Via Trade, Diplomacy Until Gaza Massacre Ends: Turkish President

25.05.2024 16:12

Türkiye’s moves will go on until ‘Netanyahu administration ends its massacres in Gaza,” says Recep Tayyip Erdogan Türkiye's economic priority is to reduce inflation to single digits for permanent relief, with a focus on long term stability to improve the nation's welfare, says Turkish president.

Ankara will continue to put pressure on Israel through trade and diplomacy until Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's administration ceases the massacre in the Gaza Strip, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday.

Speaking at a meeting of the Foreign Economic Relations Board (DEIK) in Istanbul, Erdogan was unequivocal about what has been happening in Gaza since October 7, 2023.

"We are keeping our channels of communication open in our business community in the process of implementing our decision to suspend commercial transactions to force Israel, which has martyred 36,000 innocent people in Gaza, to cease-fire," he said.

"Ankara will continue to put pressure on Israel through trade, (and) diplomacy until Netanyahu administration ends its massacres in Gaza," he emphasized.

On Friday, the ICJ reaffirmed its previous orders and indicated further measures including, keeping the Rafah border crossing open and allowing access for investigators to the blockaded enclave.

Over 35,900 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza, the vast majority being women and children, and nearly 80,300 others injured since October following an attack by Hamas.

More than seven months into the Israeli war, vast swathes of Gaza lay in ruins amid a crippling blockade of food, clean water and medicine.

The president also touched on the country's economic goals and achievements.

In a historic achievement for Türkiye, exports surpassed $255B, hitting a record-breaking $257.6B as of April, he said.

"With a 4.5% growth rate, Türkiye ranks first in Europe, second in Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries, and fourth in G-20," he emphasized.

Pointing out the goals of Ankara's economic program, the Turkish president said that Türkiye's economic priority was to reduce inflation to single digits for permanent relief, with a focus on long-term stability to improve the nation's welfare. -
