Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan said Friday that US President Joe Biden’s visit to Israel this week was tantamount to US approval of the destruction in Gaza and that it would “go down in history,” Reuters reported.
In an interview with state broadcaster TRT, Fidan said Israel had “changed the narrative” about its involvement in Tuesday’s explosion at a Gaza hospital, adding that he hoped a summit in Cairo on Saturday would lead to an agreement on ending the Israeli offensive.
“Of course, Biden coming there under these circumstances and in some way condoning the destruction in Gaza will go down in history,” Fidan said. “This is not a surprise to many, but it creates a perception that can have many different consequences for America”
He also said that Turkey is proposing a guarantorship system to the parties to find a lasting solution to the conflict, adding that Turkey is ready to be a guarantor for the Palestinian side. He also called on other countries in the region to participate.
