Occupier To Visit Non Occupied Statelet

Erdogan is a cheeky boy, isn’t he?

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he would travel to Gaza if Israel did not apologize to Turkey for last year’s Gaza flotilla raid, Turkish daily Hurriyet reported.

Erdogan made the statement while on his way to northern Cyprus where he addressed his intent to strike a peace deal between the Greek and Turkish sides of the island nation, according to the report.

Turkey made it clear that it does not intend to compromise on an apology. It has both increased its demands for reconciliation and made declarations of how it would further sour ties if Israel did not meet its demands, such as a state visit to Gaza. Increased demands include reparations paid to the families of those killed during the raid, to which Israel has agreed in principle, and an end to the Gaza blockade, which has been authorized as legal by the United Nations.

Cyprus is a Member State of the European Union. The northern part of the island is occupied by Turkey, which has settled its own population there.

Gaza is a vassal statelet of Iran.
