Turkey reaffirms its Jerusalem stance in Geneva


GENEVA

Turkey will never make any compromise on the Jerusalem issue, a visiting minister said in Geneva on Wednesday.

“Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine,” Zehra Zumrut Selcuk, Turkey’s Family, Labor and Social Services Minister, said in a meeting with her Palestinian counterpart Nasri Abu Jaish as part of the International Labour Organization (ILO) conference in Geneva, Switzerland.

Turkey will continue its efforts to make the whole world accept this fact, Selcuk added.

She also said Turkey is ready to provide technical aid to Palestine in any area.

Abu Jaish, for his part, appreciated the firm stance of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the Palestine cause.
