"This should not be an option; it is not advisable nor applicable. As Turkey, we will stand against this. We will never approve any new operations or military tension in our region."
In response to a question on the Israel-Palestine issue, Davutoğlu stated, "Enough already. The price of the perpetuation of the Israel-Palestine issue is being paid by the people in our region, including Turkey. Israelis need to decide what it is they want."
