Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday called for the United Nations Security Council to be reformed, decrying the fact that the United States could veto a ceasefire proposal for Gaza despite huge support from other countries, APA reports citing Reuters.

"The United Nations Security Council demand for ceasefire is rejected only by U.S. veto. Is this justice?," Erdogan said in his address at the World Human Rights Day event in Istanbul.

"The U.N. Security Council needs to be reformed," he added.

“We have lost our hope and expectation from the U.N. Security Council,” he said. “Since Oct. 7, the U.N. Security Council, whose mission is to establish global peace, has turned into a protector of Israel."
