TÜSİAD boss Dinçer backs PM Erdoğan criticism of UN
'In an environment where regional conflicts are rapidly becoming globalized, the United Nations remains non-functional in preserving peace and security,' Haluk Dinçer said.Turkish Industrialists’ and Businessmen’s Association (TÜSİAD) Chairman Haluk Dinçer has submitted a letter to the prime minister, expressing support for the latter’s criticism of the United Nations for its “inaction” in preventing atrocities committed across the world.
“In an environment where regional conflicts are rapidly becoming globalized, the United Nations remains non-functional in preserving peace and security. The ineffectiveness of the U.N. against violence and its inability to differentiate between the persecutor and the persecuted is further fanning the atmosphere of violence and terror [in the world],” the letter by Dinçer stated.
It added that it is “unacceptable in terms of politics and ethics” for “world powers to stay silent” amid the atrocities being committed in the world.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has recently been highly critical of the U.N., accusing it of inaction in the face of ongoing Israeli strikes on Gaza. Both Erdoğan and Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu have repeatedly argued in favor of reforming the U.N. Security Council, which they describe as an unequal and unfair system that fails to reflect the will of most countries.
