Livni: Turkey recognizes Israel’s weakness

September 5, 2011 17:32

Opposition leader Tzipi Livni (Kadima) criticized the government's handling of the diplomatic crisis with Ankara on Monday, following reports that Israeli tourists were detained at the airport in Turkey.

"Turkey recognizes Israel's weakness and is allowing itself to behave as never before," Livni said at a conference on regional cooperation.

"I've had many meetings with Erdogan, but even then, in difficult situations, we were able to recruit Turkey to our side," she explained.

“Our reaction to the flotilla was justified, as is the naval blockade [on Gaza],” the Kadima leader added, “but arresting or detaining Israeli citizens in the airport in Turkey is unacceptable.”
