Turkish Foreign Ministry: Israel does not want to resolve the conflict based on the two-state principle.

Israel seeks to reduce to zero the possibility of a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan said on Friday.

“Israel has been institutionally engaged in disinformation since October 7, trying to convince the world by hiding the truth. The purpose of disinformation in connection with the current crisis is to justify the killing of more than 14 thousand Palestinians, including six thousand children, with medieval cruelty, claiming self-defense,” – he said at the Stratcom International Strategic Communications Summit.

According to the Turkish minister, for this reason Israel attacks hospitals and medical centers, claiming that there are tunnels under them, and then shifts the blame to others.

“But the main focus of this story is that Israel, through these actions, is trying to hide the occupation of Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza and nullifying the two-state solution,” Fidan emphasized.


Also in the speech, he called it a strategic mistake for the United States to support the terrorist Kurdistan Workers’ Party, recognized in Turkey, allegedly for the purpose of fighting against the militants of the Islamic State. “We expect allies to make no distinction between terrorists when fighting them,” Fidan said.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in a video message to the summit participants, also noted that 64 journalists were killed as a result of Israeli attacks. According to him, a number of Western media, even after the murder of their colleagues by the Israeli military, continue to cover the conflict one-sidedly, sympathizing with Israel.


More than 60 speakers from 30 countries will speak at the summit, the central theme of which is the fight against hybrid threats.
