Turkey can send its soldiers to East Jerusalem as a part of the contingent of international peacekeeping forces, but the parliament hasn’t received a relevant inquiry yet. This is what Vice-Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee of the Parliament of Turkey Ahmet Berat Conkar told RIA Novosti.
Conkar stated that the Turkish government is leading negotiations with other states and the Organization for Islamic Cooperation. “I assume that this topic is still being discussed since it’s not only about Turkey. It is necessary to develop a unified international approach. I think there is a need for peacekeeping forces,” Conkar said.
Earlier today, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared that Turkey is starting to support the Palestinians in Jerusalem with the same resoluteness that it supported Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh.
