Turkish trade minister dismisses Katz’s ‘absolutely fictional’ claim of Ankara easing trade ban

Turkish Trade Minister Omer Bolat says that Israeli claims of Ankara easing its trade ban with Israel are “absolutely fictional and have nothing to do with reality.”

Turkey’s trade ban with Israel will remain in place until a permanent ceasefire in Gaza and humanitarian aid flow to the region is secured, the minister says in a post on X.

Foreign Minister Israel Katz said earlier today that Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan had retreated from his earlier position and lifted many of the trade restrictions he imposed on Israel.
