Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said efforts should be exerted to prevent international intervention in Syria.
Speaking at a TV program, Davutoglu said such an international intervention may lead to undesired outcomes, "Syria is our neighbor and a sovereign country. We give high importance to resolution of the matter within the country itself. There is still a chance for this. This chance should not be missed."
Asked if there would be a military intervention in Syria where clashes escalated recently and asked to comment on policy Turkey would pursue, Davutoglu said, "we should work to prevent such a possibility. International intervention may lead to undesired results particularly in such nonhomogeneous societies in sociological sense."
Meanhwile, 252 Syrian nationals who fled Syria after unrest and uprisings and crossed into Turkey the other night continue to wait at the Fehmi Dincer Sports Auditorium in Yayladagi town of southern province of Hatay.
Speaking to the AA, the Sub-governor of Yayladagi, Tolga Polat, said that the Turkish Red Crescent Aid Society (Kizilay) was working to erect tents for the Syrians.
We will move the Syrians into tents once the tents are ready, Polat said.
