Turkey's Jerusalem consul general gets a 'promotion'ambassador to 'Palestine' (Hat Tip: Joshua I).
Turkey’s consul-general in Ramallah, Şakir Özkan Torunlar, will present credentials to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, a Turkish Foreign Ministry official told Hürriyet Daily News today.Gee, maybe Hamas and the IHH can cooperate on developing terrorism tactics.
Ankara’s move parallels Turkey’s support of Palestine’s bid to join the United Nations as a non-member state, the official said.
Noting that Ankara recognized Palestine as a state many years ago, the official said that according to the latest upgrade, Torunlar will be appointed to the “Palestinian State.”
Torunlar met with Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki in Ramallah and pledged to work to enhance cooperation between the two states.
What could go wrong?
