Erdogan says Turkey "key country" for solving conflicts in region


(MENAFN) The Turkish leader declared on Sunday that Turkey is the "key country" for resolving the conflicts in the area.

“Turkey is the country that offers the most applicable suggestions to solve the problems. Turkey is the key country for solving the crises and problems in the region," Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke to reporters on Sunday while aboard the presidential plane, which was returning from Riyadh, the Saudi capital, where he participated in the Arab-Islamic Extraordinary Summit.

"It is the only country that can meet with all the countries in our geography and gather the conflicting and warring parties at the same table," he pointed out.

Erdogan further stated that he remains open to engaging with any party seeking to communicate with Turkey for a genuine resolution.

"Our effort is to protect human life, ensure peace, end wars, and wipe off the tears of the innocent," he stressed.

In reference to the voting at the UN General Assembly in New York, Erdogan mentioned that through telephone diplomacy, he aimed to persuade the countries that abstained to endorse a resolution advocating for a cease-fire in Gaza.

“Are there any of those (countries) who abstain that we can attract to our side? We are in search of this, and I want to review it. I want to initiate an intensive telephone diplomacy following the Riyadh summit,” Erdogan reported to media.
