Kurdish opening among Erdogan's agenda in Syria visit

Turkish Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan departed from the Turkish capital for Syria on Tuesday.

Holding a press conference at Esenboga Airport prior to his departure, Erdogan briefed reporters on his visit and replied to questions.

Upon a question on whether the situation in Makhmour camp would be on the agenda of his talks in Syria, Erdogan said issues related to Turkey's national unity and brotherhood process, as well as the developments regarding the democratic move would be on the agenda and the diplomatic aspect of the issues would be discussed during his bilateral talks.

Commenting on Israeli administration's negative opinion regarding Turkey's mediatorship in the Middle East peace process, Erdogan said Turkey was ready to undertake such a duty directly or indirectly if there were any demands.

"Turkey is ready to display all the efforts for peace in the Middle East. Because, peace in this region means peace in the world," he said.

Erdogan also said that Syrian President Bashar al-Asad trusted Turkey and believed in its mediation efforts.

"Turkey always supports peace and it is ready to assume any duty if demanded," he added.
