Erdogan, Putin agree to continue efforts for Syria political solution: Turkish presidency

Operation launched by US, Britain and France against Syrian regime is appropriate reaction: Turkish Foreign Ministry

The president said this sensitivity towards chemical attacks of the Assad regime should also be shown when conventional weapons are used to kill innocent people in Syria.

Turkey has welcomed a joint strike by the U.S., U.K., and France against the Assad regime in the wake of a suspected chemical attack, which killed dozens outside of Damascus in Syria.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry has commented on the operation launched by the US, UK and France against the Syrian regime. "The conscience of the global community carries no doubt to that effect".

Ankara said chemical weapons attacks that indiscriminately target civilians "constitute crimes against humanity" and should not go unpunished.

"The use of chemical weapons is a violation of worldwide law and a crime against humanity", İbrahim Kalın, Presidential Spokesperson, said in a statement on April 14.

He said it would be wrong to expect the previous attacks by the Syrian regime to remain unanswered.

United States 'locked and loaded' for potential future Syria strike
In comments posted on his Twitter feed, Harris said: "The use of chemical weapons can never be tolerated in the civilized world". Bush's infamous declaration, standing aboard an aircraft carrier in 2003, that the US had accomplished its mission in Iraq.

Turkey is a vocal critic of Assad's regime in Damascus and backed rebels fighting for his ouster.

Earlier Friday, the USA announced it had "very high confidence" that the Assad regime was responsible for a suspected chemical attack last weekend.

Washington believes both sarin and chlorine were used in the attack, a senior USA administration official told reporters on Saturday.

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said the strikes had not been launched via Turkey's southern Incirlik air base.

"Erdoğan highlighted the importance of not escalating tensions in Syria even further [to Theresa May]", the report read.
