Premier League stars Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan have been strongly criticized by the German soccer federation (DFB) for posing with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The fresh violence in Gaza on Monday, when Israels army killed 60 Palestinians during protests, came as the United States formally moved its embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. Erdogan regards himself as a champion of the Palestinian cause and previous year hosted an OIC summit in Istanbul to denounce US President Donald Trumps decision to recognise occupied-al-Quds as Israel's capital.

According to Erdogan, this topic will be a topic of discussion at negotiations in bilateral and expanded.

"Islamic countries should without fail review their relations with Israel", Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim told his ruling party in parliament.

Israel expelled the Turkish consul-general in Jerusalem, and Erdogan exchanged heated words on Twitter with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Mr Erdogan said the U.S. decision to move its embassy was not only a violation of United Nations resolutions and global law, but also a step away from the country's role as a mediator in the Middle East peace process. "I want to stress again the importance of the relations between Turkey and the United Kingdom", said British Prime Minister.

In addition, in the framework of the visit to Britain, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with Queen Elizabeth II.

Further, the parties went to negotiate with eye to eye.

The meeting was held at Buckingham Palace behind closed doors and lasted forty minutes.
