The visit of the US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, to Ankara yesterday monopolizes the interest of the Turkish media, which comments on both the cold climate of the Blinken-Fidan meeting and the attitude of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who at the same time was visiting Rizoupoli, avoiding to see the American Foreign Minister, as commented by the correspondent of SKAI in Istanbul, Manolis Kostidis.

This attitude of the Turkish president is analyzed by Turkish Hurriyet titled “Erdogan’s air from the Black Sea Mountains to Blinken” which states that Anthony Blinken could not see Erdogan who went to Rizopol.

At the same time, Turkish media comment on the fact that Fidan did not hug Blinken during their meeting while the Turkish minister had a replica of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in his office.

“Blinken came to Ankara and was received at the airport by the staff of the American embassy and the vice-prefect of Ankara. That is, a low-protocol socket was implemented. The US is already facing backlash because it supports and helps the massacre of civilians by Israel in Gaza.” comments the television network, Haber Global.

Hakan Fidan did not respond when the US Secretary of State tried to hug him. The meeting between the two ministers lasted 2.5 hours. In the published photo there was a detail. Next to him was a statue of the Al-Aqsa Mosque that was inside a crescent moon and this was seen as a message to the whole world. There were also no joint statements to the press,” continues the Turkish television network.

US pressures Turkey to release hostages

Regarding the discussion between Fidan and Blinek, according to Manolis Kostidis, the US is putting pressure on the release of the hostages first and then a ceasefire, which is opposed by Turkey, which wants a ceasefire first.

Against Erdogan – Ozer for Hamas

At the same time, Manolis Kostidis comments on the great conflict that has broken out inside Turkey between Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the new president of the Republican People’s Party, Ozgur Ozel.

On the one hand, Erdogan declares that Hamas is not a terrorist organization, while Ozgur Ozer clearly takes the position of the West, saying that Hamas is a terrorist organization, while at the same time calling it “a shame for Turkey that the president makes such a statement.”

“With Israel, everything started with what the terrorist organization Hamas did. It is wrong that Erdogan states that Hamas is not a terrorist organization and this attitude of his is a shame for Turkey. Hamas is a terrorist organization and when there were no conflicts in Palestine it started this phase with attacks against civilians and with rockets. Of course, the attacks of the terrorist organization Hamas cannot justify the state terrorism practiced by Israel.” said Ozer characteristically.
