Turkish parliament head condemns Pompeo's W.Bank visit

Turkey’s parliament speaker on Friday condemned a recent visit by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to an Israeli settlement in the occupied West Bank.

“A ‘lame duck’ leaves misleading traces. Only a ‘lame duck’ politician would visit illegal settlements, which are considered illegal according to the international law, for the purpose of provocation, not for the peace. I condemn [the visit],” Mustafa Sentop said on Twitter.

Pompeo on Thursday became the first top US diplomat to visit an Israeli settlement in the occupied West Bank.
