Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan once again criticized the West for failing to stop Israel's attacks on Gaza, calling it a "shame for humanity." He expressed disappointment at powerful nations' inability to intervene in the "brutal attacks" and hoped for justice in 2024, wishing for the oppressors to face consequences and for the healing of the oppressed.
From the beginning, the Turkish leader was clear about his views on the war in the Middle East. Erdogan is one of the biggest critics of Israel and its policy towards the Palestinians. He believes that the current situation in Palestine is unacceptable and that it is necessary for some countries to raise their voices and put an end to this war!
“History will duly judge those responsible for causing this hideous scene, those who have tried to legitimise it, and those who have turned a blind eye to it," Erdogan said, as quoted by trtafrika.com!
"It is a shame for humanity that so many prominent states are powerless in the face of Israel's brutal attacks predicated on massacre and theft,"-Erdogan added.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Ukraine and Moldova's accession negotiations with the European Union will stall, similar to the case of Turkey.
Erdogan emphasized that Turkey has long deserved the right to enter the EU due to its strategic and economic potential. He pointed out that political reasons hinder the process of joining, stressing that the status of a candidate does not guarantee membership.
Turkey has been a candidate for the EU since 2005, but negotiations have stalled due to EU concerns about human rights and regional conflicts such as the situation in Cyprus. Erdogan believes that progress could happen during Hungary's presidency of the EU Council in 2024.
The situation in the world is more tense than ever before, and it seems that it will only get worse in the future. Political experts emphasize that there is reason for concern, but it is difficult to predict the development of the situation.
