Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday criticized Israel’s actions in the region, urging it to halt “inhumane” attacks on Gaza, Anadolu Agency reports.

“Israel should stop insisting on continuing these massacres and end these inhumane attacks,” President Erdogan told journalists on his return flight from Germany.

“To date, it is Israel that has insisted on attacks and continued massacres. It is Israel that tramples on human rights, and international law,” he added.

Erdogan also expressed concerns over Israel’s regional ambitions, stating: “They (Israeli leaders) threaten Lebanon to relieve themselves. Israel must abandon its intention to spread conflicts in the region.”

Turning to Turkiye’s relationship with Syria, Erdogan also signaled a potential thaw in relations.

“The moment Bashar al-Assad takes a step towards improving relations with Turkiye, we will reciprocate that approach,” he said, emphasizing a willingness to mend ties.

He further noted: “We will extend an invitation to Assad. We want to bring Turkiye-Syria relations back to the same point as in the past.”

Addressing relations with Iran, Erdogan underscored the importance of the historical and cultural ties between the two countries.

“Iran is an important neighbor with whom we have historical, cultural ties. I expect Turkiye-Iran ties to develop in a positive direction in the new period,” he stated.

Erdogan also highlighted the strategic partnership with the UK, vowing to strengthen it further. “We will continue to enhance relations with our ally UK in every field in the new period,” he affirmed.
