Turkey gives note to Syria, says Turkish FM

Monday, November 12, 2012

In a joint press conference with his Italian colleague Giulio Terzi in Rome, Davutoglu stressed that Turkey presented a note to Syria after Monday’s incidents in Ceylanpinar.

"We informed the UN Security Council and NATO on the situation in Ceylanpinar. The Assad regime is responsible for what took place. The secondary responsibility sits with the UN Security Council for their inaction," Davutoglu underlined.

"Bombings made by Syrian jets in residential areas are not acceptable. The Syrian jets did not violate Turkey’s air space. Had they violated our air space, we would have responded accordingly," Davutoglu indicated.

"On Sunday, the Syrian opposition reached a common alliance. The international community from now on has to do what it has to do," Davutoglu also said.
