Turkey's FM says ready for duty to end Yemen clashes

Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that Turkey was ready to do its utmost to end clashes in Yemen.

Davutoglu said at a news conference about recent developments in Yemen, "there are recently some news reports both in Turkish and foreign newspapers that Turkey might make efforts. Actually it reflects an expectation that Turkey can take action as a regional actor esteemed by the parties. This is a positive expectation."

"We have historical ties with Yemen. We are ready to do our utmost to ensure peace, to protect Yemen's territorial integrity and political unity and to end clashes which have led to bitter incidents among the parties," he said.

"We have consulted with the regional countries. If we can do anything to put an end to the clashes, we will do it. But there is nothing specific for the time being," he said.
