Turkey’s support provided to the Palestinian people and their just cause was hailed by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu was received by Abbas in Ramallah and discussed the Palestinian cause and Israel’s assaults on Palestinians.
Abbas told Cavusoglu that Palestine is committed to its obligations under international law and to finding a political horizon for ending the Israeli occupation, according to Palestine’s official news agency.
In order to enhance bilateral ties between the two countries, Abbas also stressed the importance of continuing the work of the Turkey-Palestine Joint Committee.
As part of the committee’s work, nine agreements and memorandums of understanding (MoUs) were also signed at the Palestinian Foreign Ministry in Ramallah.
The committee was formed in 2010 and is comprised of representatives from both sides, including ministers.
