Turkish FM denies BBC interview remark on Syria safe zone

World Bulletin/News Desk

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu denied Friday a comment attributed to him in a BBC interview over setting up a safe zone inside Syria.

"I have made no remarks which would suggest that it was worth taking the risk of war to establish a safe zone in Syria," he told The Anadolu Agency in New York where he participates in the UN General Assembly meetings.
Davutoglu said Syrian people were struggling in a serious humanitarian tragedy which he said got worse with each passing day.

"Turkey has kept its doors wide open to its Syrian brethren from the very early stages of the crisis and it will keep it that way. However, this does not change the fact that tens, hundreds of people are massacred at the hands of the Damascus regime everyday. International community needs to show the necessary response to the humanitarian tragedy without any delay. This is the point that I have made in the [BBC] interview," Davutoglu said.
