In an effort to impose a truce, President Erdogan of Turkey ordered a halt to commerce with Israel

Posted by

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, president of Turkey, has stated that the country’s decision to halt commerce with Israel was driven by a single objective: to pressure the Israeli government into ending the Gaza Strip conflict.

Thursday, when meeting in Istanbul with the board of directors of the Independent Industrialists and Businessmen Association, Erdogan made the statements, according to the presidency’s website.

To mitigate the fallout from cutting off trade with Israel, the president said the government will work in tandem with businesses and engage with them.

As a result of Israel’s “non-stop violence” against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, Turkey’s Trade Ministry stated that the government cut off all trade with Israel on Thursday.

According to Erdogan, other nations that are uneasy with the current scenario will follow this move.
