Turkey declared its support for Palestinian efforts to obtain UN recognition of statehood, according to a report published Saturday morning in the Turkish daily, Zaman.

According to the report, Turkish Ambassador to the UN Ertuğrul Apakan said, "The time has come to show solidarity with the Palestinians and help them to live in peace and dignity."

“Through their state building efforts, the Palestinian Authority has proven to all the skeptics that they deserve to attain their decades-long target of internationally recognized statehood, even though they continue to suffer under occupation,” Apakan was quoted as saying by Zaman.
