Turkey may suspend ties with UAE over Israel deal, Erdogan says

ISTANBUL, Aug 14 (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that Turkey was considering closing its embassy in Abu Dhabi and suspending diplomatic ties with the United Arab Emirates over its accord to normalise ties with Israel.

Erdogan was speaking to reporters in Istanbul after the Turkish Foreign Ministry said history will never forgive the “hypocritical behaviour” of the UAE in agreeing such a deal.
