The agreement between Israel and the UAE on the normalization of diplomatic relations ignores the will of the Palestinian people. The Turkish Foreign Ministry stated this.

The ministry stressed that the UAE authorities do not have the right to negotiate with Israel on behalf of Palestine, as well as make concessions on issues of vital importance to it without the consent of the Palestinian people.

Also, the Turkish Foreign Ministry noted that they support the tough reaction shown by the Palestinian people and the administration to the joint statement of the United States, Israel and the UAE. The ministry believes that the UAE is trying to agree to this "truce" for the sake of unilateral gain.

"The so-called peace plan of the United States for the Middle East was doomed to failure from the very beginning. The UAE is trying to use the US plan in their own interests, ignoring the will of the Palestinians. The UAE authorities have no right to negotiate with Israel on behalf of Palestine and its people, go on concessions on vital issues for the Palestinians. History and the peoples of the region will not forgive the hypocritical behavior of the UAE, which betrayed the Palestinians," the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

In addition, the Turkish diplomatic department called the US plan, on the basis of which the UAE is trying to "make secret calculations", stillborn, ignoring the will of Palestine.

As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky held a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, during which they discussed issues of trade cooperation, as well as the joint fight against the Covid-19 coronavirus infection.
