Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 17
Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman called to review the economic relations of the Jewish state with Turkey following the statements of the country's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
"Turkish President Erdogan uses any excuse for open incitement against the Jewish state. I think we need to review much in our relations with Turkey", Lieberman posted on Facebook.
Earlier Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey wants to open an embassy in East Jerusalem, following a decision by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to recognize East Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state.
