Update - Erdogan Urges 'Common Stance' On Palestine

Turkish president speaks on phone with leaders from Germany, Iran, Russia, Indonesia, Sudan, and Qatar.

Turkey's president on Wednesday had a series of phone calls with the leaders of many countries to discuss the recent developments along the Gaza border.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states to take a "common stance" on the Gaza killings in phone calls with Indonesian President Joko Widodo, Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, and Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.

Erdogan's phone calls came after at least 62 Palestinian demonstrators were martyred and hundreds injured by cross-border Israeli gunfire on Monday.

The leaders also discussed an extraordinary OIC meeting in Istanbul this Friday on the rising tension in Palestine and Washington's relocation of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Erdogan said the international community should speak out for Palestinians' suffering and called for the group to take a firm and common stance.

Later on Wednesday, in a phone call, Erdogan and German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed that the current situation in Gaza endangers possible solutions.

In a phone call with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Erdogan stressed the importance of Friday's OIC meeting for taking a joint stance.

The two leaders also vowed to bring up the issue at the United Nations.

Erdogan later spoke with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on the phone on the same issue.

Erdogan criticized the Israeli attacks on Palestinians "before the eyes of the whole world" as "shameful" and told Putin about the upcoming OIC extraordinary meeting set for Friday.

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu also continued phone talks with his counterparts on the indiscriminate violence and killings by Israeli soldiers along the Gaza border and the relocation of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

His talks included Kazakh Foreign Minister Kairat Abdrakhmanov, Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khalid Al-Sabah, Brunei Foreign and Second Trade Minister Lim Jock Seng, Malian Foreign and International Cooperation Minister Tieman Hubert Coulibaly, Uzbek Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Kamilov, Libyan Government of National Accord Foreign Minister Taha Siala, Kyrgyz Foreign Minister Erlan Abdyldayev, Mauritanian Foreign Minister Isselkou Ould Ahmed Izid Bih, Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari, and Chadian Foreign Minister Mohammed Zayn Sherif separately.

Monday's Palestinian demonstration coincided with Israel's 70th anniversary -- an event Palestinians refer to as "The Catastrophe" -- and the relocation of Washington's Israel embassy to Jerusalem.

Since the Gaza rallies began on March 30, more than 100 Palestinian demonstrators have been martyred by cross-border Israeli army gunfire.

Last week, the Israeli government claimed the ongoing border protests constituted a "state of war" in which international humanitarian law does not apply. -
