Canada's foreign affairs minister said that Canada commended Turkey on successfully stopping shipment of weapons to Syria.
A statement by John Baird said that Canada has continually supported efforts to prevent weapons from reaching Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime, amid what he described as the leader's "bloody struggle to cling to power."
"We commend Turkey on successfully stopping one such shipment today," Baird said. "These efforts will help limit the Assad regime's ability to kill civilians in Syria."
Baird added that Canada wants the bloodshed in Syria to end quickly, and urged the UN Security Council to push for further sanctions as well as an arms embargo "to bring pressure to bear on the Assad regime."
