Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated Monday that "a world that is stuck between the opinions of five permanent members cannot be a fair one," regarding United Nations Security Council (UNSC). 

Speaking at the opening of Asia-Pacific Congress and Expo in Istanbul's Lutfi Kirdar Hall, Erdogan said the world was bigger than the "five" (five permanent members of the UN Security Council: US, UK, Russia, China and France) stressing that steps should be taken for peace and welfare.

He added that two of the permanent members locked the system by saying "no" for the envisioned steps to be taken, underlining the must of a cycling system.  

Erdogan also underlined that Turkey is one of the exceptional countries in the region when it comes to peace, stability, welfare and especially democracy.

"We find solutions for each existing domestic problems via democracy and law. In regional issues, we support peace, welfare and stability, especially the systems where demands of the people reflected on the administration, where democracy and the will of nation are dominant in the governmental system," Erdogan said.

"If an earthquake, a disaster, a flood takes place anywhere, we are there (to help). If it is in Chile, we are there. If it's in Pakistan, we are there. We are there without making a distinction if they are Muslims or Christians.Why? Because we must make an era of solidarity and sharing."
