Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that Turkey showed respect to borders of its neighboring countries.
But we don't have any borders when people, who are victims of cruelty, knock on our doors, added Davutoglu who spoke at the first meeting of Syrian Turkmen Platform in Istanbul on Saturday.
Noting that there had been a big struggle in Syria in the past 20 months, Davutoglu said that Syrians as well as Turkmens living in Syria had been fighting for peace.
Turkey, from the beginning, supported the struggle of Syrian people, said Davutoglu, adding that Turkey pursued an open door policy for the Syrian people who were asking to cross in Turkey.
Davutoglu recalled that UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon visited Syrian camps in Turkey last week and said that they were grateful to Turkey because they had never seen such a refugee policy before.Last Mod: 15 Aralık 2012, 14:36
