Israel's annexation plans of West Bank denounced by Turkey

ANKARA -- Turkey strongly denounced Israel for continuing its "aggressive" policies after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced plans to annex parts of the West Bank following the upcoming elections.

Speaking in Jeddah where the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) held an emergency meeting to discuss Netanyahu's recent remarks, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Netanyahu's plan was "a despicable attempt" to earn votes ahead of Tuesday's election.

Netanyahu last Tuesday promised to annex parts of the occupied land in the West Bank, including the Jordan Valley and northern Dead Sea, if he wins the general elections, drawing sharp criticism from Palestinians and Muslim nations.

Turkey's top diplomat also censured what he called a lack of reaction from other Muslim states.

"Israel, encouraged by the support of certain countries, is continuing its aggressive policies," said Cavusoglu.

"If the whole Muslim community had reacted together, the reckless plans, policies and behaviours of the United States and Israel would never have reached this point," added Cavusoglu.
