WASHINGTON - Turkey`s EU Minister Egemen Bagis said that even if chemical weapons had not been used in Syria, an intervention in this country was inevitable because there was currently a dictatorial regime which was killing 150 of its citizens everyday.

US is currently discussing that an intervention is now inevitable in Syria as Assad regime is using chemical weapons, Bagis told Turkish journalists during his talks in Washington.

The regime in Syria is bombing its own cities, killing its own citizens, and we don`t have the right to remain indifferent towards such a regime, said Bagis, adding, "we all have responsibilities to take in this issue."

If you remember; many lives were lost in Kosovo and Bosnia because of inaction of international community. Today, what is happening in Syria is a minor version of incidents in Kosovo and Bosnia, said Bagis, adding that US President Barack Obama --just like former US President Bill Clinton during that period-- should take action in UN Security Council and assume a joint reaction with the international community regarding Syria.
