Turkey conveys solid proposal for joint platform in Gaza: FM

Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan said that "Turkey has conveyed a solid proposal to relevant sides (in Gaza) that will help establish a joint platform".

Speaking on Turkey's private NTV channel on Friday evening, Babacan said that at a time when Turkey was working for peace, Israel's attacks offended the Turkish government.

"Mediation is a relationship of confidence," Babacan said.

"We pay high attention to keeping the channels of communication open," Babacan said.

"There must be mutual agreement among all sides in order to make a cease-fire permanent and sustainable," Babacan also said.

Babacan gave no details about Turkey's solid proposal, except saying that armed clashes must be ended immediately.
