Turkey on Friday condemned a landmark deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates in which the Jewish state pledged to suspend annexation of Palestinian lands as a hypocritical betrayal of the Palestinian cause.

"While betraying the Palestinian cause to serve its narrow interests, the UAE is trying to present this as a kind of act of self-sacrifice for Palestine," the foreign ministry said in a statement.

"History and the conscience of the people living in the region will not forget and never forgive this hypocritical behaviour.

"Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a devout Muslim and solid supporter of Palestinian rights who has since quite a while ago condemned Israeli arrangements in the West Bank. 

He blamed a few Arab regions in January for submitting "conspiracy" by support US President Donald Trump's questionable Middle East harmony plan.

The foreign ministry said it was "extremely worrying that the UAE, through its unilateral action, put an end to the Arab Peace Initiative developed by the Arab League and backed by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation".
