Turkey warns of Gaza issue spread within Mideast

Turkish foreign minister warned against possible spread of tensions within Middle East unless an immediate settlement was reached in Gaza.

"There is a risk that the problem in Gaza might splatter to different areas in the region if this problem was not solved immediately," Ali Babacan told reporters during a press meeting upon his arrival in Turkey from a tour of Kosovo and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

"It is of crucial importance for the stability and security of our region that a truce must be declared in the shortest possible time," he said.

Babacan said Turkey had been exerting "intense diplomatic efforts" on the part of the sides of the conflict to help reach a truce.
