 Part of channel(s): Syria (current event)

Turkey has suspended talks with Syria and may impose sanctions on Damascus, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said, the clearest sign yet that Ankara has parted ways with President Bashar al-Assad over his bloody crackdown on anti-government protesters.
After long maintaining close relations with neighbour Syria, Turkey has spoken out increasingly against Assad, urging him to end a military crackdown on a popular uprising and to launch democratic reforms.
During a tour of Arab countries last week, Erdogan said thatTurkey's approach to Syria had changed and that Ankara wouldsoon announce its "final" decision on Syria by the time the U.N.General Assembly meeting in New York.

  • How many brutal murders-of-innocents does it take to get the Muslim world to do something? Now, sanctions are cowardly. If this were happening in Europe or the Americas - the murderers would have been militarily stopped long ago. I guess Muslim courage is limited to hiding land mines in the dark, stupid driving stunts and psychopathic suicide bombs. Mohammed would be ashamed of all of you.

      Iran already told Assad to stop the oppression and killings, and besides, ITS THE SYRIANS THAT SUPPLY ARMS TO IRAN (because of the sanctions) NOT VICE VERSA

  • When our minister Davutoglu start his "zero problem" policy we became hostile with our neighbours. Even Azerbaijan and Turkish Cypriots doesnt trust us anymore.

  • My post that suggested Muslims lacked the courage to arrest Assad for murdering his own people has drawn some ugly replies - from Muslims. Again, they show cowardice by shouting instead of acting. One of them was going to "report" me. Chickensh*ts. A peacekeeping force from Iran, Turkey and Saudi Arab should go in and stop the murders. Shout for that instead.

  • If there was an uprising in Turkey the Government would be just as brutal and homicidal as Assad has been.
