Turkey's deputy prime minister said late on Friday that Turkey asked the United Nations (UN) and NATO to register Syria's border violations.
Ali Babacan said Turkey would take into consideration the options in line with upcoming developments, but expressed hope that Annan plan and UN resolutions would bear result in Syria.
"We hope and aim that peace, order and stability would be ensured in Syria soon," Babacan told a press conference in Washington.
Babacan said Turkey hoped that massacre and use of force would end in Syria, and Syria's problems should be solved with its own domestic dynamics.
Ali Babacan said today, many countries indexed their Syria policy on Turkey's discourses, and many countries were taking into consideration what Turkey was saying when shaping up their Syria policy.
Babacan said Turkey was supporting Annan plan but some deadlines should be put to implementation of provisions of Annan plan.
Annan's six-point peace plan includes demands for a ceasefire, the immediate withdrawal of heavy armour from residential areas and access for humanitarian aid.
"Change in Syria just a matter of time"
Babacan said Turkey believed a change in Syria was just a matter of time, Bashar al-Assad regime was no more legitimate in Syria.
"I believe that domestic dynamics in Syria will make a change in case massacre ends," Babacan said, adding Turkey could share its experiences with Middle Eastern and North African countries that were in a transformation process if it was asked to do so.
The minister said the co-existence of Islam, democracy and modernism in Turkey changed the region's mentality.
Also, Babacan said the political changes in Egypt must be supported by economy, and expressed concern over terrorist attacks in the south of Yemen and clashes between Shiite and Sunni groups in the north of the country.
Babacan said Tunisian economy should be restructured and new employment should be created, and noted that Turkey was working on joint projects with the Tunisian government.
Ali Babacan said Turkey supported a two-state solution in the Middle East peace process, and Israel's uncompromising stance on settlements was the main obstacle before a solution.
Babacan also said a progress should not be expected in talks unless Israel made serious commitments to respect to parameters, particularly the 1967 borders.
Moreover, Babacan said the Istanbul meeting of Iran and P5+1 (China, Russia, the United States, Britain, France + Germany) countries led to a decrease in global oil prices by 6-7 USD.
Iran and P5+1 met in Istanbul on April 14. The next meeting is set to take place in Baghdad on May 23.
Ceasefire not effective, clashes continue
Syrians staying in Turkey said on Saturday the ceasefire was not effective and clashes continued in their country.
The number of Syrians who fled from massacre in their country and took shelter in a tent-site in Islahiye town of the southeastern province of Gaziantep rose to 5,832.
Ridwan Hayani said he came from Aleppo, and noted that the ceasefire had not been effective.
"Tank, anti-aircraft and bomb attacks continue. They entered a town of 25,000 population with 60 tanks, and they ruined the town," Hayani said.
Ridwan Hayan's brother Muhammed Hayani said doctors and nurses were killed in Syria to prevent them from treating the injured people.
Meanwhile, four representatives of the United Nations (UN) visited the Islahiye tent-site on Friday.
