Beirut, Apr 8 (AP) Turkey’s foreign minister says Ankara sees the US intervention in Syria as appropriate but not enough.
Mevlut Cavusoglu, speaking in the southern city of Antalya today, said if the US intervention is limited only to a missile attack on a Syrian air base then it is a “cosmetic intervention” unless it removes President Bashar Assad from power.
Cavusoglu, whose country is a strong backer of the Syrian opposition, said the most ideal process will be a political solution that leads to a transitional government accepted by all Syrians as soon as possible. He said that for that “this oppressive Assad needs to go.”
Cavusoglu said after the transitional government takes over, it will be followed with elections in which Syrians in the country and abroad can vote. (AP)
