ISTANBUL, June 9 (Bernama) -- Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday that the international community should show a fair stance and react to not only Iran but also other regional countries that have nuclear weapons, Turkey's Anadolu news agency reported.

"All countries in the world must know that crimes they committed and rules they violated will not be unreciprocated. A fair stance must be displayed against these states," he said in his address at the "Millennium Development Goals Regional Conference" organised in Istanbul by Turkey's State Planning Organisation, UN Development Programme (UNDP) and UN Economic Commission for Europe (ECE).

Reiterating that Turkey does not want nuclear weapons in its region, Erdogan said that Turkey and Brazil had signed a uranium swap deal with Iran which he said was "a diplomatic victory."

Erdogan said Turkey and Brazil achieved a diplomatic victory for the sake of regional and global peace."

"The international community, which shows a rightful sensitivity against Iran's having nuclear weapons, must show the same reaction to nuclear weapons of other countries in the region," he said.

"There must be a reaction that could satisfy everyone," Anadolu quoted Erdogan as saying.
