Turkish FM Davutoglu Says World has Failed Syria, Conflict ‘Threat to All’


Turkey’s Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Syria’s worsening war poses a threat to the whole world.

International strategy including “real intelligence cooperation” and withdrawal of all foreign fighters is needed to end the conflict, he told Reuters.

Syria is becoming a risk for all European countries as well, “because of the presence of these terrorist groups …,” he said.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs and terrorists against both the army and civilians.

Tens of thousands of people have been killed since terrorist and armed groups turned protest rallies into armed clashes.

The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.
