Turkey-Israel -Turkish premier: I see Israel as a threat to its region.
PRETORIA , October 05, 2011(TUR) - Turkish Prime Minister Recep
Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that he saw Israel as a threat for its
region and surrounding countries because it had atomic bomb. Israel also
imposes state terror in the region, added Erdogan who spoke at a
conference on Turkish foreign policy in South Africa. Erdogan said that
Israel hurled phosphor bombs on Gaza, adding that using weapons of mass
destruction was a crime, and Israel even bombed UN buildings. Noting
that Israel never accepted it had atomic bomb, Erdogan said that however
everybody was attacking on Iran as it had atomic bomb, and he asked what
kind of a justice it was. I see Israel as a threat for its region and
surrounding countries because it has atomic bomb, said Erdogan, adding
that Israel was also an occupier and imposing state terror. Turkey had
been the most important friend of Israel but Israel lost the friendship
of Turkey due to these approaches, said Erdogan.
