At the Davos World Economic Forum, the Prime Minister of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan stormed out of Davos after not given an opportunity to respond to the loud-voice critique of President of Israel Shimon Peres. Then Erdogan and Schwab hold a presser in which Erdoghan said "I have respect for Mr. Peres therefore I did not raise my voice. Otherwise I would have raised my voice. He doesn't speak truth. History and political science deny him
Erdogan said the following.
"In the panel in the evening Ban ki-Moon spoke fore 15 minutes, I spoke for 12 minutes and Mr. Amr Moussa cut his speech short when it reached to 12 minutes.
"On the other hand President Peres spoke for 25 minutes and during the speech he turned and speak at me at a manner that we don't see in Davos. And president Peres raised his voice time to time.
"When I intervened to take the floor the moderator did not allow me to do. And I showed reaction to the moderator and left the meeting. I wanted to express these thoughts so that there would be no misunderstanding. We will talk about this with Mr. Schwab. My reaction here was towards the moderator. Such moderation will cast a shadow over peace efforts.
