Lebanon Speaker Nabih Berri interrupted Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan as he delivered a speech before the committee of the Organization of the Islamic Conference in Istanbul to applaud him.
Berri interrupted Erdogan halfway through his speech and stood among the 28 leaders attending the conference to applaud the Turkish premier when Erdogan said “If Jerusalem burns the Middle East and the world would burn.”
“The historic speech by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan saved the conference from monotony, and once again proved his zeal for Jerusalem and concerns over both the Arab and Islamic worlds,” Berri said in remarks published Wednesday by the daily An-Nahar.
