Turkey shouldn’t have expelled the Israeli ambassador and downgraded its relations with Israel, the European Jewish Congress said on Monday.

EJC President Moshe Kantor said ties between Turkey and Israel were vital for the stability of the Middle East, especially with recent events in the region.

“The strategic partnership and close cooperation between Israel and Turkey for the last few decades have proven a significant anchor of stability for the Middle East,” Kantor said. “This is not just a relationship of mutual interests but an important pillar of global security.”
