(NEWS) David Cameron UK PM: Flotilla Raid Unacceptable

"In Turkey, Cameron says Israeli probe of deadly raid on Gaza-bound Turkish ship should be swift transparent, adding, 'Gaza cannot and must not be allowed to remain a prison camp'.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said Tuesday the world needs Turkey's help in pushing Iran to address international concerns about its suspected nuclear weapons program, and he harshly criticized Israel's raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla that killed nine activists aboard a Turkish aid ship.

Cameron, addressing Turkish businessmen, also declared that Britain was a staunch backer of Turkey's troubled bid to join the European Union. His visit early in his term was a measure of Britain's acknowledgment of Turkey as a critical ally in a conflict-prone region, much as President Obama traveled to Turkey, NATO's only Muslim member, in 2009 to boost a partnership despite differences on key issues."
