Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 25 /. Trend A.Taghiyeva /
Turkey will not allow the creation of the type of autonomy in Syria as the Kurdish autonomy in northern Iraq, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, the Sabah newspaper reported.
He said the creation of a union which will damage the unity of Syria, will not be allowed neither by Turkey and nor by other countries in the region.
Erdogan also accused Iran of inaction on the Syrian crisis issue and noted that Tehran's silence is unacceptable when tens of thousands of Muslims die in Syria.
Anti-government protests have continued in Syria for more than a year and half. According to the UN, the total number of victims of the conflict in Syria exceeds 70,000. More than 230,000 have become refugees with around three million in need of humanitarian assistance. Syrian authorities say they oppose the well-armed militants.
