Turkey rejects US ‘annexation plan that kills 2-state, usurps Palestinian lands’

Turkey strongly rejects the US peace plan for the Israelis and Palestinians, describing it as “an annexation plan that aims to kill the two-state solution and usurp Palestinian lands.”

A Turkish Foreign Ministry statement also rejects US President Donald Trump’s declaration to keep Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital, saying “Jerusalem is our red line.”

“The United States’ so-call peace plan was still-born,” the ministry says in a statement. “The Palestinian people and their lands cannot be bought with money.”

The ministry says: “we will not support any plan that is not accepted by Palestine. Peace cannot come to the Middle East without an end to the occupation.”
