Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Friday that neither Turkey nor Syrian people were responsible for Syria crisis, but Assad regime, bombarding its own people, was responsible for it.
Addressing deputies in the parliament regarding a censure motion against him, Davutoglu said that there was a remarkable increase in Turkey's trade with its neighboring countries when compared to 2002.
Turkey's trade volume with Russia rose to 30 billion USD from 5 billion USD, and trade volume with Iran increased 10 times, he said.
If there was a boost in trade with a country, it minimizes possibility of war with that country, he said.
