Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that the United Nations had collapsed in the face of events in Gaza where Israeli occupation forces killed more than 60 Palestinian protesters on Monday as the United States relocated its embassy in the occupied territories to Al-Quds (Jerusalem).
Speaking at a dinner on the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Erdogan said the majority of the international community had failed to react to the events in Gaza, and warned that remaining silent would mean “opening a very dangerous door.”
“In the face of all these events, the United Nations has ended. (It has) become exhausted and collapsed,” Erdogan said.
“If Israel’s bullying is met with more silence, the world will rapidly be dragged into a chaos where thuggery prevails.”
The event in Gaza have also sparked a diplomatic row between Turkey and the Zionist entity, with both countries expelling each other’s senior diplomats on Tuesday.
