Erdogan pushing 'nuclear free Middle East' meme

President Obama's best friend among Middle East leaders is in Seoul, South Korea, where Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is pushing the 'nuclear free Middle East' meme, which is regarded here in Israel as an attack on this country (Hat Tip: Joshua I).
Erdoğan headed to Seoul, the capital of South Korea, on Friday evening in order to attend the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Security Summit to be held March 26-27. Erdoğan is expected to reject the cynical approach to the nuclear arms issue, arguing that only focusing on Iran in terms of nuclear proliferation will not help non-proliferation efforts in the world, according to officials at the Turkish Prime Ministry.

Israel is known to possess nuclear weapons, although it has never officially attested to that.

The prime minister will also emphasize the right to develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. Wrapping up talks in Seoul, Erdoğan will go directly to Tehran to discuss the results and final message of the summit.
What could go wrong?
