Turkish daily newspapers on Tuesday covered the video footage of missing Turkish camera operator, Turkish FM Davutoglu's call on the international community to share the burden stemming from the increasing number of Syrians in Turkey and Turkish parliament speaker's call for a nation-wide stance against terrorism, drafting a "national reconciliation agenda." The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.
All Turkish dailies covered the video footage of a Turkish camera operator Cuneyt Unal who went missing in Syria which has been broadcast on the Syrian national television channel, the Al Ahbariye, on Monday. Turkish daily YENI SAFAK headlined "Save Cuneyt" and quoted Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu as saying, "Syria is responsible for the well being of the camera operator." The video shows him like a terrorist in the beginning. Turkish dailies stated that with Unal's blackened eyes and having difficulty while speaking, it seems that he was beaten and he seemed he was speaking by heart.
Another topic which was covered by most of the Turkish dailies was Turkish FM Davutoglu's call on the international community to share the burden stemming from the increasing number of Syrians taking shelter in Turkey. According to daily TURKIYE, Davutoglu said, "The number of Syrians seeking shelter in Turkey has exceeded 80,000. United Nations should start acting."
And lastly, Turkish dailies highlighted Turkish Parliament Speak Cemil Cicek's call for a nation-wide stance against terrorism, drafting a "national reconciliation agenda." Turkish daily VATAN headlined "I call it terrorist but another one calls it guerilla!" and daily quoted Cicek as saying, "If somebody calls them freedom fighters when I call them terrorists, then there should be precautions being taken." The 11-point reconciliation agenda called for harmony between all political parties, non-governmental organizations and all segments of the society. The agenda said the fight against terrorism should be carried out within the confines of the basic principles of the rule of law and respect for human rights.
