Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Monday that his country does not want Iran or any other nation to have nuclear weapons.

Erdogan is among dozens of world leaders in Washington for US President Barack Obama's nuclear security summit. He spoke Monday at George Mason University's new Center for Global Islamic Studies in Fairfax, Virginia, just outside the US capital.Erdogan, in his remarks, did not specifically mention Israel's nuclear program, but he criticized its treatment of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and called Gaza an "open-air prison."

While the United States worries about Iran's nuclear program, Turkey has its own concerns about Israel's nuclear program. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu opted not to attend the Obama's summit, and insiders said he had expected Turkey and Egypt to use the conference as a platform to challenge him over his country's widely assumed nuclear arsenal, which the Jewish state never has acknowledged.
