Turkish FM calls for raising Palestine's status at UN
Davutoglu called for upgrading Palestine's status at UN from 'observer state' to 'non-member observer state.'


Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has called for upgrading Palestine's status at the United Nations from 'observer state' to 'non-member observer state.'
"Palestinians are still denied a legitimate right to govern. Now is the time to start a new era. And at this stage what we want is at least to raise Palestine's status from observer state to non-member observer state," Davutoglu said in Ankara, the Turkish capital, on Friday during a reception hosted by Palestine's Ambassador to Turkey in the honor of visiting Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Malki.
Davutoglu urged international community and the UN "to fulfill long overdue promises to Palestine. Turkish people and the Turkish government will support every decision to be taken by the Palestinian state. It is an political obligation for us all to support Palestinians in this respect."
