  Turkish premier Recep Erdogan has said that he would not attend the Mediterranean climate conference in Athens in the event Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu attends.

Turkey told Sky TV news channel in an interview aired at a late hour on Monday night that he does not want to speak to Netanyahu.

Ankara has been at odds with Tel Aviv over the latter's navy attack on the Freedom Flotilla late last May while carrying relief material to the besieged Gaza Strip in which 9 Turkish activists were killed and many others wounded.

Erdogan said that he would not like to speak to a premier who boasts such a military act.

He said that Israel is about to lose an important friend in the Middle East namely Turkey, adding that the Israelis should pay for the rudeness of their government.

Erdogan is scheduled to attend a Mediterranean conference on climate change in Athens next Friday.
