The Turkish people and government have never quarreled and will not fight with other countries, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was quoting as saying by CNN Turk. He made the statement while commenting on the recent events surrounding the killing of Turkish human rights activists on board the "Flotilla of Freedom" transporting humanitarian aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip.
Erdogan once again accused Israel of committing crimes against humanity and breaching international law.
The process of identifying the bodies of nine activists killed by the Israeli military began in morgues in Istanbul Thursday morning, the Associated Press reported.
Early this morning, aircrafts carrying human rights activists who had been on board the "Flotilla of Freedom" landed at the Ankara airport.
