Pointing out that Turkey, as a single voice, when the time comes, has the power and the will to teach the appropriate lesson to these ``double faces'', Hakki Yusuf called on the Italian parliamentarians to criticize the stance of the Italian government ``which is contrary to the friendship existing between two countries''.
