World Bulletin / News Desk

NATO Parliamentary Assembly President Hugh Bayley said on Monday that the humanitarian crisis in Syria was likely to spread to other countries.

Bayley visited Syrian refugee camp in Yayladagi town in Turkey's southern Hatay city on Monday.

Following the visit, Bayley spoke to the journalists and said that they were going to brief NATO officials about what they saw in the camps. 

Bayley saying that the unbelievable humanitarian crisis in Syria was likely to spread to other countries, added: 

"Humanitarian aid we provided for Syrians should reach every Syrian. We will tell our parliament that we should enable all Syrians, particularly those facing famine and starvation, to access the humanitarian aids in the country. I am here representing the British government. I will tell them to put more pressure to stop this atrocity. At the same time hereby I want to thank to my Turkish colleagues. We could see the severity of the crisis thanks to their cooperation. We had the opportunity to see the burden that Turkey shouldered in this case." 

Bayley also said that NATO doesn't have a plan to intervene in the situation.
