Türkiye criticized the U.S. veto to Palestinian entry to the U.N.

Ankara, Apr 19 (Prensa Latina) Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan today criticized the US veto of Palestine's entry as a full member of the United Nations (UN).

He noted, however, that he did not expect anything else from the US administration of the head of state, Joe Biden, given his foreign policy stance.

During a press conference, Erdogan said that the whole world supported Palestine, although, unfortunately, Washington positioned itself with Israel, according to the Daily Sabah.

A total of 12 nations voted in favor, including Russia and China, and the United Kingdom and Switzerland abstained; as a result, Palestine will continue to have observer status in the UN General Assembly, a status it has held since 2012.

Earlier, Türkiye authorities warned of the danger of a permanent conflict in the Middle East region.

“The priority of the international community must be to put an end to the massacre in the Gaza Strip and to achieve a lasting peace in our region through the establishment of a Palestinian state,” the Foreign Ministry stressed in a statement.
