Turkey Denounces Israel’s “Jewish Nation-State” Law

Ankara, MINA –The Turkish Foreign Ministry on Thursday condemned the new Jewish nation-state law passed by Israel’s Knesset, saying it “disregards” norms of universal law.

“The Jewish nation-state law passed by the Israeli parliament today disregards norms of universal law and ignores the rights of Palestinians,” WAFA reported, citing the ministry in a statement.

The statement came after the Knesset passed a law declaring the country as “the nation-state of the Jewish people”.

The ministry also condemned the law – which describes the right to self-determination in Israel as only belonging to Jewish people – as “antiquated” and “discriminatory.”

Turkey called on the international community to take a stand against the law and said such a law would end the vision of a two-state solution. (T/RS5/RS1)
