Turkey's PM calls for 'brave' global stance against Israel aid attack

Turkey's prime minister said on Wednesday that remaining silent against Israel's recent raid on aid ships in the Mediterranean, which was an unlawful attack in international waters, would open a new wound in the conscience of humanity.

Speaking at the "Millennium Development Goals Regional Conference" held in Istanbul by Turkey's State Planning Organization, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan commented on last week's Israeli attack that killed 9 people and wounded many others.

"Keeping silent one more time against this totally unlawful attack in international waters and ignoring this attack again like it was done in the past, will open a new wound in the conscience of humanity," Erdogan said.

Erdogan said that a state's irresponsible, unthoughtful and reckless breach of law would do harm to people's perception of justice, as well as the reliability of international organizations.

"If we are talking about global peace, we should display a humanistic, fair, decisive and brave stance against such illegalities," Erdogan said.

The Turkish premier also said that those remaining silent would be participating in and legitimizing such violent attacks.
