On Saturday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the humanitarian crisis in Gaza in phone calls with The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary Jens Stoltenberg and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
During the phone call with Stoltenberg, Erdogan urged the West and the rest of the world to "take action as soon as possible to end the humanitarian tragedies" unfolding in Gaza, the presidency said in a post on social media platform X, previously known as Twitter.
Erdogan held Western countries' attitude responsible for increasing human rights violations in Gaza and warned that their failure to stop Israel would lead to "irreparable consequences."
He discussed with Stoltenberg the uninterrupted delivery of humanitarian aid to innocent civilians, according to the presidency.
