Minister Gül: The Decision of UN is promising for humanity and peace 22.12.2017
Following the recognition of Jerusalem draft law at the General Assembly of the United Nations, Minister of Justice Abdulhamit Gül said "The results at the General Assembly of the United Nations is promising for humanity and peace."

Gül stated that the decision is significant and satisfactory and added that humanity demonstrated sensitivity contrary to Trump's behaviour that is against the law, world peace, and every faith and value.

"I AM STRONG, I CAN DO WHAT I WANT" IS NOT THE RIGHT PATH

Minister Gül added that the topic entered the agenda by the initiative of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the President of the Republic and the Term President of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and disagreed with Trump's decision. He noted:

"This is a good progress in humanity, law, global justice and peace with the support of all those sensitive countries in the world and by the initiatives of Turkey. I believe this process will remind the USA that the mentality of "I am strong and I can do what I want       " does not work. You might be the super power in terms of law, global and international diplomacy, but there are human rights, the law and justice principles which you are bound by. This decision shows how important those principles are."

Gül reiterated Erdoğan's statement "The World is Bigger than Five" and added that the voting at the General Assembly of the United Nations marks the acknowledgement of this statement by the entire world.

MINISTER GÜL: YOU ARE A COUNTRY WHICH ACTS AGAINST THE LAW

Minister Gül considered the decision as an important development for the independent Palestinian State and free Jerusalem. He added:

"The decision on Jerusalem taken at the General Assembly of the United Nations is an important, promising and happy development for the Palestinian case, for the suffering people who fight for liberty and independence and the whole world. Gül gave the following message to the USA 'You are a country which acts against the law, you make threats. We act in compliance with the law, no matter what you threaten us with, the common future of the humanity is what matters to us'. "Trump's and the USA authorities' threats were in vain, the representatives of the country were not deterred by those threats, this is very promising for the global peace and humanity."

YOU ARE POWERFUL ONLY IF YOU ARE RIGHT

"We know each one of you" is a threat made by the USA and it shows the USA's understanding of the law and pluralism. The USA says "I am strong therefore I am right", but the world gave an answer to that "You are strong only if you are right".

Minister Gül advised the USA to comply with the law not side with the countries which aim to damage Turkey.
