Turkish foreign minister has has called on the international community to 'define a joint stance' against Syria's Assad regime.

"It is high time for the international community to define a joint stance against a regime that uses every brutal method on its own people," Ahmet Davutoglu told reporters Sunday in Berlin following a meeting with his German counterpart Guido Westerwelle.

Davutoglu said the numbers of Syrians fleeing the conflict to neighboring countries continued to increase which he said has also raised security risks.

Turkey alone shelters more than 300,000 Syrian refugees mostly in camps. The more than two-year-old conflict has claimed over 70,000 people and sent 1.4 million refugees according to the UNHCR.
