Work must begin to create an independent Palestine, Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan said at a press conference held on the sidelines of a meeting of the UN Security Council.

The minister said that Ankara is working intensively to fulfill both the legal and moral obligations of the international community. Fidan stressed the importance of achieving an urgent ceasefire.

He also noted that urgent assistance is needed to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza.

"But at the same time, we need to start addressing the root of the problem - working towards a two-state solution", Hakan Fidan said.
