Erdogan and Putin discuss rising Israel-Palestine tensions in phone call
In a recent phone conversation, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey and Russian President Vladimir Putin exchanged views on the escalating conflict between Israel and Palestine, focusing on the growing humanitarian crisis.
The dialogue, details of which were shared on the social media account of the Turkish Presidential Communications Directorate, highlighted the intensifying civilian casualties in the Palestinian territories. Erdogan expressed deep concern about the increased brutality towards Palestinians and criticized the silence of Western states. He remarked that this lack of action and concern from the West has propelled the humanitarian situation in Gaza toward a dire state.
Asserting Turkey's commitment to peace, Erdogan stressed that his nation will persistently strive to reinstate calm in the region.
This diplomatic exchange, as reported by the Anadolu Agency, also comes on the heels of a significant decision by Erdogan. He has recently forwarded the ratification of Sweden's NATO membership to the Grand National Assembly of Turkey for consideration.
