ISTANBUL, Dec 9 (Reuters) – 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.

“The United Nations Security Council demand for ceasefire is rejected only by U.S. veto. Is this justice?,” Erdogan said in a human rights conference in Istanbul.

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