|Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned over the weekend that an Israeli strike on Iran would have 'disastrous' consequences for the Middle East, likely sparking a regional war, Turkish newspapers reported on Sunday. Turkey is a major U.S. ally in the region and Erdogan indicated that he had expressed his concerns to President Barack Obama. The Israeli daily Ha'aretz reported: Speaking to reporters on Saturday, Erdogan was quoted by the Turkish daily Hurriyet as warning against the 'disastrous' outcome of a possible Israeli strike against Iran's nuclear facilities, saying: 'The entire region would be devastated if Israel strikes Iran.' [...] Erdogan also criticized the international community for keeping mum on Israel's alleged nuclear weapons, while threatening Iran over what he said was a peaceful nuclear program.|
