Turkish President Abdullah Gul said Friday that the UN had lost its reputation considerably as it remains silent on world conflicts.

Commenting on Saudi's Arabia's decision to reject its seat at the UN Security Council just hours after it was elected as one of the Council's ten non-permanent members, Gul said Saudi Arabia apparantly wanted to draw the attention of the world by doing so.

"They made a decision and we should respect it," Gul said and added, " The UN has lost its reputation considerably as it remains silent on world conflicts."

Saudi Arabia, elected as the non-permanent member for UN Security Council, on Friday rejected its seat, accusing the UN of being ineffective in dealing with international conflicts.
