Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu stated that the number of Syrians, who arrived in Turkey after fleeing from the violence in their country, was 107,769 as of October 30.
We have spent 381.8 million Turkish Lira (TL) for Syrians' needs and services so far, added Davutoglu.
He explained that 107,769 Syrians had fled to Turkey since the clashes began in Syria in April-May 2011.
He expressed Turkey's policy over developments in Syria and said that there were no instructions taken from third parts in order to shape Turkey's decisions. He underlined that it was all based on Turkey's national interest, regional vision and the adopted global values.
Davutoglu has said that re-possess of peace and stability in Syria carries such importance for Turkey.
Turkish FM noted that the Syrian crisis did not only affect the country itself but also the whole region. Davutoglu added that Syrian crisis threatened the international and regional peace, security and stability as Syrian regime's interference in Syrians and inflow of refugees to the neighbouring countries increased. He added that Syrian crisis was the problem of not only Turkey but also the international community.
In this sense, firstly, we have tried to synchronise the efforts for solution with Arab League, said Davutoglu, and added "then, we supported UN, and lastly the Friends of Syria Group for their efforts within the scope of bringing solutions to the crisis, as needed, we led them. The "buffer zone" or "humanitarian corridor" in Syria has to be formed with the international community's common willpower and decision, not with solo decision."
