Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in his speech at the UN General Assembly Tuesday that Turkey would not be silent in the face of the use of economic sanctions as a political weapon.

In his speech, Erdogan declared that his country would continue to support the Palestinians. "Those who remain indifferent to the suffering of the Palestinians only increase their strength to fight."

"Even if the entire world stands by, we will stand by the Palestinians and their right to Jerusalem," declared the President of Turkey from the General Assembly.

Erdogan also attacked the performance of the UN Security Council, the strongest body in the organization, in his speech.

"The Security Council has become one that serves only the interests of its five permanent members, and only their own."

"The UN has begun to satisfy only the wishes of the five countries that have veto powers at the Security Council, including not stopping the massacre of Palestinians," he said.
