Turkish President Abdullah Gul has said Turkey does not have a problem with the people of Israel, instead the problems with Israel stem from the policies that are employed by its government, according to a report by Turkish daily Hurriyet published Sunday.

“I have learned that [Turkish] Jews are praying for me in their synagogues every Saturday. All of them are our citizens. Our problem is not with the people of Israel, but with the policies pursued by the government of Israel,” Gül said, in remarks that were published Sunday in another publication, Milliyet. Gul was responding to questions from journalists as they traveled from Turkmenistan, Hurriyet reported.
