Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan has said that turkey will be closing its embassy in Abu Dhabi and will be suspending its diplomatic ties with the United Arab Emirates because UAE has normalized its ties with Israel. President Erdogan said to the reporters in Istanbul after the foreign minister of Turkey has said that history will never forgive the hypocritical unusual behavior of the United Arab Emirates in agreeing to deal with Israel.
The foreign minister also said that Palestine people and administration have the right to react against the agreement which is recasting the order of the middle east politics from the issue of Palestinians to fight against Iran.
The minister of Turkey has said in his statement that the history and the moral of the people will not forget and will not forgive the hypocritical unusual behavior of the United Arab Emirates, betraying the Palestinian cause for the sake of its narrow interests.
It is extremely wrong that the United Arab Emirates with its one side actions trying to do away with the 2002 Arab peace plan developed by the Arab league.
Turkey has its diplomatic ties with Israel but the relations have been strained for years. Israeli commandos have killed 10 Turkish activists who were trying to breach a blockade on the Gaza Strip, which is ruled by the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas. The United Arab Emirates has become the third country to have full relations with Israel after jorden in 1994 and Egypt in 1979.
