US opinion on Israeli settlements not valid, says Turkish FM

Istanbul: Turkey said on Tuesday the United States declaration that it will no longer regard Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories as illegal has no validity in international law.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu wrote on Twitter that such declarations “shall have no validity with respect to international law”. “No country is above international law,” he said.
Turkey, a strong advocate of the Palestinian cause, also criticised US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2017. (AFP)
