ankara/brussels - The expected American recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel 'plunges the region and the world into a fire with no end in sight. It is a step that ignores history, which involves injustice and cruelty, which is short-sighted and utterly poignant, 'said Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlüt Cavusoglu, calling the American decision on a visit to Brussels 'a big mistake, which brings the Middle East no stability and peace, but more chaos and instability. '
The Turkish minister Cavusoglu stressed shortly before an interview with his American colleague Rex Tillerson that not only Muslims are against this plan, but that the whole world is against this. President Erdogan has previously threatened to break off relations with Washington.
