Erdogan: Turkey to not give up on Jerusalem


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday expressed Turkey's resolve to not give up on Jerusalem, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

 

"We are determined to not give up on our rights on Jerusalem. We will never leave our first qiblah [direction towards which Muslims pray] to the mercy of a state which feeds on blood, tears and occupation for decades," Erdogan said during an iftar (fast-breaking) dinner with ambassadors in capital Ankara.

 

"We will continue our fight until Jerusalem becomes home of peace, tranquility and dignity for all three monotheistic religions,” he said.

 

About the U.S. move to shift its embassy to Jerusalem, the president said the hands of the U.S. are “covered with the blood of Palestinian children”.
