Egypt parl't speaker says Turkish PM's stance was historic
The Egyptian parliament speaker defined Turkish prime minister's stance during the World Economic Forum as historic.
The Egyptian parliament speaker defined on Friday Turkish prime minister's stance during the World Economic Forum (WEF) as historic.
Ahmed Fathi Sorour, the speaker of the People's Assembly of Egypt, said that Turkish Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan's stance in a panel discussion during the annual meeting of WEF was historic.
"Erdogan assumed a historic attitude," Sorour told reporters in the Turkish province of Istanbul.
Prime Minister Erdogan on Thursday walked off the stage at a panel discussion on Gaza at the World Economic Forum in Davos after the moderator interrupted his speech in response to Israeli President Shimon Peres' criticisms and said that he will not attend the Davos meetings in the future.
Erdogan's reaction found support throughout the world, especially in Islamic countries.
Sourur said that it was an appropriate reaction, and Erdogan showed that the Palestinian issue was an issue concerning not only the Arabs but also the Turks and that Turkey could not bear injustice.
