Erdogan complained that his comments on the conflict were cut short and walked off the stage in front of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and other panel members.
“I do not think I will be coming back to Davos after this because you do not let me speak,” the prime minister shouted as he left, though he said later he could reconsider.
Erdogan criticized the audience of international officials and corporate chiefs for applauding Peres’s emotional defense of Israel’s offensive in Gaza, which left more than 1,300 Palestinians dead and nearly 6,000 others injured.
“I find it very sad that people applaud what you have said because many people have been killed,” he shouted at Peres.
