Turkey's Prime Ministry said Friday that it was noticed that Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's statements in his exclusive interview with American NBC television in Istanbul on Thursday were misreported in some news reports.

The Prime Ministry said, "Turkey's Prime Minister never mentioned or assessed any possibility of the US's sending military forces to Syria and Turkey supporting that."

The ministry cleared what Erdogan said on the establishment of a no-fly zone in Syria by releasing the transcript of Erdogan's statement, which read; "Right from the beginning...we may say 'yes': If the UN Security Council puts this on the table, we have a positive look on this, and we do our share. A very important mission is on the UNSC, especially Russia and China."
