Turkey’s foreign minister stated on Friday that the United States is now isolated on the Gaza issue after vetoing a UN Security Council resolution calling for a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip.

During an exclusive interview in the US, Foreign Minister Fidan reported that their counterparts had conveyed that the US is standing alone on this matter, particularly in the recent UN vote.

Fidan, alongside other foreign ministers, had been designated by a joint Arab-Islamic summit to advocate for a cease-fire in Gaza, which has faced Israeli attacks for over two months.

The summit tasked ministers from Turkey, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Egypt, Jordan, Qatar, and Nigeria with taking international action to halt the conflict in Gaza and establish a lasting peace.

The committee engaged with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, as well as think tanks, media outlets, and politicians during their visit to Washington, DC Fidan noted that during the meeting with Blinken, the group, which has become a spokesperson for world public opinion, candidly conveyed the tragedy in Gaza and its widespread consequences.
