Erdogan slams Trump's Mideast peace deal

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said U.S. President Donald Trump’s so-called Middle East peace plan attempts to legitimize Israel's occupation of Palestine.

The Turkish leader said the plan will not serve peace and solution in the region. It ignores Palestinians' rights and attempts to legitimize Israel's occupation," Anadolu agency cited him as saying.

"Jerusalem is sacred for Muslims and Trump's so-called peace plan proposing to leave Jerusalem to Israel is never acceptable," Erdogan added.
