Turkish FM says does not want Syria to suffer Iraq pains

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has said Turkey did not want any foreign intervention in Syria, adding however, that Syrian army's military operations against civilians were not acceptable.

"We do not want any intervention in Syria from outside the country but at the same time we cannot accept operations conducted against civilians the way they continued in this holy month of Ramadan. And we are determined to take every necessary measure to make sure that operations stop ... This is for us an issue that closely concerns our own stability," Davutoglu told reporters Tuesday in a fast breaking dinner in the Turkish capital, Ankara.

"We do not want to see the sufferings in Iraq re-occur in Syria, too. We have done everything over the last eight months to prevent worst case scenarios from materializing. We have worked day and night and we will continue to do anything in our power to make Syria a country free of any conflicts, oppression and confrontation. We have made and will continue to make necessary warnings," Davutoglu said.
