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.
