Turkey expects Russia, Iran to convince Syria

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu held a press conference with his Qatari counterpart Khaled al-Attiyah in Istanbul during which they evaluated developments in Syria.

Upon a question about Russia's statement about Syrian regime's allowing UN team for chemical probe, Davutoglu said it was a very correct statement.

"If the issue is chemical weapons, everybody has to be on the same line. This is a crime against humanity and deserved joint action."

Davutoglu stated that he shared these views with his Iranian counterpart as well, and added, "If Syrian regime does not allow UN probe, because there is a suspicion that there are hidden facts, we expect Iran and Russia, and international community to force the regime to allow the investigation."

Davutoglu added if it was proved that the Syrian regime used chemical weapons, then the UN should take a decision within international law in unity.
