Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has warned of dangerous conspiracy being planned against the Palestine cause, noting that countries in the region are working to change the Palestinian Authority (PA) and instate puppets, the Anadolu Agency reported yesterday.
Cavusoglu added that Turkey had been greatly criticised because it maintained contacts with Hamas since it won the elections in 2006.
He went on to stress the importance of ending Palestinian division. Ankara, he explained, would continue all forms of support to rebuild hospitals and schools in Gaza, as well as to solve the electricity and water crises.
“Holding the meeting of the Palestinian government in Gaza after Hamas’ dissolution of the administrative committee is a historical step for the sake of Palestine future,” he said. “We consider it very positive step,” he added, noting that his country contributed to help reach the deal.
The Palestinian Authority held its first cabinet meeting the Gaza Strip yesterday and began to take control of ministries in the besieged enclave following unity talks with ruling Hamas.
