Turkey’s Ruling Party Seeks Reconciliation with Israeli Regime, Egypt

Turkey’s Ruling Party Seeks Reconciliation with Israeli Regime, Egypt

Alwaght- Turkish ruling party, AKP, seeks to mend ties with once arch-foe, Israeli regime, as well as Egypt, where Turkey-backed government of Morsi was removed in 2013.

Turkish President Erdogan chaired a nine-hour-long cabinet meeting on Feb. 22 focused on foreign policy to update the country's roadmap on the future of bilateral relations with Tel Aviv and Cairo as well as Ankara's position regarding the Syrian Crisis, According to Hurriyet Daily News.

Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu briefed the meeting over the current phase of normalization efforts with Israeli regime. The undersecretary-level efforts between Ankara and Tel Aviv were close to being completed, Cavusoglu said. Accordingly, they may make a joint statement “in the coming days,” he added.

Turkey has stepped up efforts in recent months to restore its relations with Tel Aviv Regime that was severely damaged after an Israeli raid on a Turkish ship, the Mavi Marmara, which killed 10 Turkish activists in May 2010 as the vessel was trying to breach longstanding brutal blockade on the Gaza strip.

Turkey has set three preconditions for putting an end to five-year disputes: compensation for the Mavi Marmara victims, an apology for the incident and the lifting of the Gaza blockade. However its seems that Turkey's precondition for lifting Gaza Blockade, is an act at face-saving for Erdogan who during the past few years, specifically past five years, has been busy talking about supporting the Palestinian cause and its resistant movements.

Although Israeli regime has recently apologized for attack on Marmara Ship, as negotiations appear to have made progress on compensation for the victims of the Mavi Marmara raid, the Tel Aviv Regime has seriously rejected Ankara's precondition of lifting Gaza blockade.

According to Hurriyet, Turkey's cabinet meeting also agreed Turkey’s stance vis-à-vis the policies of other countries, foremost the US, regarding Syria’s Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its militia force, the People’s Protection Units (YPG), has been felicitous.

Since mid-February, Turkey has repeatedly shelled Kurdish fighters in Syria. Ankara contends the YPG is a branch of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which has waged a three-decade insurgency against the Turkish state.

Turkey should better explain its thesis to its allies and the international community with presenting documents, Erdogan and the cabinet decided.

The Feb. 22 meeting at the presidential palace in Ankara also discussed ways of rapprochement with Egypt. It concluded that ministerial-level meetings could be held, an idea which found support from Erdogan.

In early February, while categorically ruling out meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi until death penalty sentences for ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi and other Muslim Brotherhood leaders were lifted, Erdogan had already given a green light for ministerial-level talks between the two estranged countries.

For his part, Davutoğlu did not appear warm to the idea of a prime-ministerial level meeting. They agreed the 13th Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Summit in Istanbul in April could offer an opportunity for such ministerial talks. Almost all members of the Council of Ministers agreed the talks’ starting point should be ministerial, Turkey-based website cited sources as saying.
