Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said he would go ahead with a scheduled trip to the Gaza Strip in May despite U.S. calls to delay the visit.

“There is no question of delaying this trip,” Erdogan said on Turkish television.

Washington had urged Erdogan to postpone visiting the impoverished Palestinian territory, saying it would be a “distraction” from U.S. efforts to revive the moribund Middle East peace process.

Erdogan stressed the exact date for his Gaza visit would be set after he visits U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House on May 16.

During a trip to Istanbul over the weekend, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the trip would be “better delayed”, urging Erdogan to wait for the “right circumstances”.

Seems like a great opportunity for some up-and-coming suicide bomber.
