Erdogan intends to meet the Israeli Foreign Minister in Ankara following the earthquake and the head of Turkish opposition party call on him to resign


The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan intends to meet with Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen in the Turkish capital, Ankara.

The meeting is expected as the Israeli Minister Foreign Eli Cohen will arrive in the coming days on a visit of solidarity with Türkiye in the aftermath of the earthquake disaster, to meet with Turkish President Erdogan, and Israeli Minister Cohen will also meet his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusoglu.

This meeting comes after the return of the Israeli rescue mission that helped in the rescue operations in Türkiye to Israel, in addition to the humanitarian aid and field hospital that Israel sent to Türkiye.

On the other hand, Kemal Kilicdaroglu, the leader of the Republican People’s Party (CHP), Türkiye’s largest opposition party, demanded that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan should resign.

In his latest remarks, Kilicdaroglu said, “I declare it frankly, the president must resign”.

He added, “I demand the president to return all the looted money of the earthquake victims… Are we going to stand by while everyone is being robbed in this country?”

Since the earthquake that affected 10 Turkish states with great losses, Türkiye is still suffering the consequences of the devastating earthquake as relief work continues, while the political battle rages between the Turkish government and the Turkish opposition parties, against the backdrop of accusations of negligence and corruption, as the country approaches the elections in next May, which is expected to be very difficult.
