Vice-President of the European Commission Margaritis Schinas said that Turkey must choose a side in geopolitics to adhere to – either Ankara will be with NATO, the European Union and the ethos of the West, or with Hamas, Moscow, Tehran and Hezbollah. He is quoted Ekathimerini.
“Turkey must choose which side of history it wants to be on: with us – the European Union, NATO, our values, the spirit of the West – or with Moscow, Tehran, Hamas and Hezbollah,” he said, adding that “the answer must be clear “.
Schinas noted that “last Saturday we all woke up to the shocking news of a violent multi-front terrorist attack carried out by Hamas against Israel and innocent people.”
“From the first moment, all 27 EU member states unanimously recognized Israel’s right to defense, condemned the terrorist attack and loudly declared that there is no justification for terror,” he said.
The day before the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan called Israel’s bombing of the Gaza Strip a massacre and criticized the United States for its position on the conflict.
