Press Release Regarding The Commencement Of Direct Talks Between Israel And The Palestinians , 01.09.2010

We welcome the commencement of direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians as a result of US efforts, following a long deadlock in the Middle East Peace Process.

It is highly important that throughout the talks, unilateral actions which could negatively affect the process are avoided and the situation on the ground is improved. In this framework, constructive contribution to the process by the international community as well as regional countries is essential.

Turkey, as in the past, will continue to support all efforts which aim at establishing a just, durable and comprehensive peace in the Middle East.
