Turkey says 'no Obama role' in secret Israeli meeting

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Thursday his meeting with Israeli Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor Binyamin Ben Eliezer in Brussels had not taken place after the recent meeting between Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and U.S. President Barack Obama in Toronto, Canada.

Speaking at the General Assembly of the Turkish Parliament, Davutoglu said that Turkey did not take any decision under a suggestion of any country and Turkey had clearly shown it with its recent "no" vote at the United Nations Security Council.

Davutoglu said that he met with Eliezer in Brussels on Tuesday in order to "convey Turkey's demands to the face of the Israelis".

We will continue to work so that our demands are met by Israel. Depending on Israel's attitude, we will continue to take the necessary steps, Davutoglu also said.
