Erdogan says flotilla raid was «cause for war»

0 Comentario

Turkey’s prime minister has said Israel’s raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla last year was "cause for war" but that his country showed "patience" and refrained from taking any action.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Al-Jazeera television in a recent interview that the Israeli attack that killed nine activists occurred in international waters and was therefore "unlawful." His comments were carried by Turkey’s state-run Anatolia news agency late Sunday.
Erdogan said "It is a cause for war, but we decided to act in line with Turkey’s grandeur and showed patience."
Israel insists its naval commandos acted in self-defense after being attacked by some of the activists.
A UN report into the raid said Israel’s naval blockade was legitimate but that it used "excessive and unreasonable" force.
Erdogan is currently in Cairo for his "Arab Spring tour." The tour comes against a backdrop of escalating tensions with Israel over the killing of nine Turkish activists last year – a standoff that has strengthened support for Ankara in large parts of North Africa and the Middle East.
He is expected to give a speech on Monday at Cairo University, where his aides say he will set out Turkey’s vision for the region.
