Turkish PM: Unfair of permanent UN Security Council members to decide fate of other countries
Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct 13 /Trend R.Hafizoglu/
UN should conduct internal reforms, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in his speech at the Istanbul conference, Turkish channel TRT haber reports on Saturday.
Erdogan noted that it is unfair that five countries, permanent members of the UN Security Council, decide the fate of other countries.
He added that the Security Council is still silent about what is happening in Syria.
"The UN is losing its credibility by turning a blind eye to what is happening in Syria," Erdogan said.
Anti-government protests have continued in Syria for a year and a half.
According to the UN, the total number of victims of the conflict in Syria is nearing 20,000.
More than 230,000 have become refugees with around three million in need of humanitarian assistance.
The Syrian authorities say they oppose the well-armed militants.
