Turkey is preparing to send letters to the parliaments of some countries in order to push them to take action to put an end to the bloodshed in Syria and to accelerate the transition period in Egypt.
The letters will be sent within this week, Parliament Speaker Cemil Cicek said in a press conference in Ankara.
Reminding the death toll in Syria, Cicek said, "We, as Turkish Parliament, think there would be lots of work and efforts that would be exerted by parliaments in order to end the civilian war and the existing regime in Syria, and to accelerate the transition period in Egypt, and to draw the world's attention to the tragedies happening. For that reason, as speaker of Parliament, I've decided to write a letter to parliaments and international parliamentary assemblies."
Cicek added, "In the letter, there will be an emphasis on the need to end the bloodshed in Syria and the need of transition into democracy in Egypt."
Meanwhile, more than 100,000 people had been killed and about 5 million others displaced from their homes in Syria since the crisis started in 2011.Güncelleme Tarihi: 26 Ağustos 2013, 17:57
