Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu says talks with Israel at very advanced stage; sides due to meet again in mid-May.20:39 30.04.16 | 0 comments
"There is nothing "illegal" about an occupation provided that the occupying power honors its responsibilities...." - Agreed. "Israel is only required to withdraw from most (but not necessarily all) territory seized in 1967" - Agreed. "when after the conditions (as contained in UNSCR 242) have been met." - whoah! Now, THAT's a bold statement, blandly pronounced! There is nothing in 242 that stipulates a chronological order, or that one condition is dependent on the prior completion of another. I will also point out that if Israel "disputes" the status of the occupied territory then it is itself in conflict with the "respect for and acknowledgement of the sovereignty, territorial integrity" of its very own land, since it is "disputing" that its sovereignty and territorial integrity extends to but does not exceed the GL, as EVERY OTHER COUNTRY AND THE UN accepts.
