Atalay's press office said reports had manipulated his remarks and put them out of context.
"It is out of question that the Deputy Prime Minister Besir Atalay made a statement that Jewish Diaspora was behind Gezi Park incidents," the press office said.
"Unfortunately, a news agency twisted the remarks of Deputy PM, which can be easily seen from reports published by other news agencies and voice recording of his speech. His statement actually made in reference to the exaggeration of Gezi Park incidents by the international media through hours-long broadcasts and unconfirmed reports. Any sign, remark or intention targeting the Jewish citizens in Turkey or the Jewish people in other countries is out of question."
