(Hurriyet) - In an interview with American television presenter Larry King, Turkish PM Recep Tayyip ErdoСЂan said that it would be inapprorpriate to look for someone to blame at this state in the Middle East Crisis. If we try to find who is guilty, we will be lead away from our main goal, which is to achieve peace and obtain a ceasefire in the area, said Mr. ErdoСЂan, who then answered Kings questions about Turkeys own stance on the continuing conflict.

Peace force after ceasefire Mr. ErdoСЂan said that Turkey would only join a peacekeeping force after a ceasefire has been achieved. At present there is an uneven use of force in the area. We believe that an international peacekeeping force will be extremely important, but Turkey will only be only be able to join such a foce after a ceasefire.
