Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Sunday that Turkey would keep assisting Syrian people.
Replying to a question on an increase in the number of Syrians who entered Turkey after fleeing clashes in their country, Davutoglu said that the number of Syrians staying in the country reached 67,000 and it could rise to 70,000 with today's developments.
In the recent days, there has been an increase in the number of Syrians entering Turkey, he said, adding that 5,000 Syrians came to Turkey in one day.
Davutoglu said he hoped that circumstances which made Syrians leave their country would go away.
