Erdoğan, Macron discuss Syria airstrikes in phone call

Andrew Brunson

Turkey was informed about the military operation in Syria, said previously Mahir Unal, spokesman and deputy chairman of the ruling Justice and Development Party.

On Friday night, the U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the U.S., the United Kingdom and France jointly launched strikes targeting the Assad regime's alleged chemical weapons capabilities after a suspected chemical attack killed dozens outside of Damascus.

Turkey regarded the operation launched by the US, Britain and France against the Syrian regime in response to the chemical attack in Duma on April 7 as appropriate response, APA reports.

"Incirlik Base was not used [in the strikes]", Bozdağ added, referring to the US military air base placed in Turkey's southern province of Adana.

Erdoğan also held a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin and British Prime Minister Theresa May on Saturday.

The use of mass destruction weapons, including chemical weapons, is a crime against humanity, the statement said.

"The Syrian regime, which has been tyrannising its own people for more than seven years, be it with conventional or chemical weapons, has a proven track record of crimes against humanity and war crimes", the foreign ministry said.

Turkish Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin on Saturday called on the global community to unite to avoid chemical attacks in future, while emphasizing the importance of seeking a political solution to the Syrian crisis.

Turkey's stance on the airstrikes has been generally positive, but nearly all messages urged for a political solution, reshaping Syria's future without the regime involvement and global determination against the use of violence against civilians rather than conducting a single and limited action.
