Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday said Turkey will push the UN Security Council to discuss the Goldstone Report on Operation Cast Lead, which accused Israel and Hamas of committing war crimes. "We will definitely take the position to discuss this issue on the Security Council," Reuters quoted Erdogan as saying. There should be "accountability" for anyone guilty of war crimes in Gaza, he reportedly added. "We're in favor of opening discussions on the Goldstone report and whoever is the guilty party, they should be identified and face the necessary sanctions," Turkey's premier said, according to the report.
