The Foreign Ministry rejected “baseless” claims and decisions on Türkiye adopted by the Arab League in a recent meeting.
The decisions once again targeted Türkiye, and were taken under the influence of some “narrow-minded and short-term interests,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement, adding that the stance deprives the Arab League of the opportunity to make a concrete, constructive and sustainable contribution to the solution of regional problems.
The Foreign Ministry said Türkiye will continue to fight terror threats to protect its national security and interests in line with the principles and norms of international law, regardless of the prejudiced approaches of some parties.
Türkiye’s fight against separatist terrorism is also critical as part of preserving the sovereignty, territorial integrity and political unity of the countries in the region, it added.
Ankara reiterates that it is ready to work together with all Arab League members that see the establishment of stability and prosperity in the region as a common goal, the ministry said.
On Tuesday, the foreign ministers of Arab League members convened in Egypt’s capital Cairo. Some countries also chaired a meeting on the so-called “Turkish intervention in the internal affairs of Arab countries.”
In March, the League’s Council of Foreign Ministers passed a similar resolution, which condemned Turkey for allegedly interfering in the internal affairs of Arab countries, calling on Ankara to stop acts “threatening the stability and security in the Middle East.” Moreover, the statement also said Turkey should stop interfering in North African countries such as Libya, and Iraq and Syria.
