Hikmet Cetin: "Turkey should not take part in military operations against Syria"

"The U.S. and Europe will leave after the operation, but Turkey will remain neighbor of Syria forever".

“Before attacking Syria, the UN mission should determine whether or not chemical weapons were used near Damascus,” former Turkish Foreign Minister Hikmet Cetin told journalists, APA reports.

He said if the use of chemical weapons in Syria is confirmed, the whole world should take joint steps in this regard. Assessing the possibility of Turkey's participation in military operations against Syria, Cetin said that it would be better for Ankara to refrain from military intervention against Syria: “The United States and Europe are far from Syria. They will conduct operations against this country, then leave, but Turkey will remain neighbor of Syria forever. So, I think that Turkey should not interfere in this issue.”
