ANKARA, August 28 (Itar-Tass) - Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said as long as the current regime was in power in Syria, there was no calm in Turkey and in the region.
“Today there is no time to pursue a cheap policy. Turkey has never upheld the use of force. But now the situation is another: Syria used chemical weapons. Thousands of people died. We’re forced to respond,” the Turkish minister said.
He said the international community and Ankara itself continued studying “all possible variants to take joint actions on the Syrian track”. “It is necessary to discuss peaceful means of the resolution of the crisis,” he said.
“We urged the U.N. to act and send a delegation there. But it was late. Turkey has serious reconnaissance data that chemical weapons were used and that it could be used by the regime. We shared this information with our colleagues,” Davutoglu said.
