Azerbaijan, Baku, September 6 / Trend A.Tagiyeva/
Many leaders of the states and governments of G-20 countries stand for the military operation in Syria to stop violence by the regime in the country, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at the press-conference in St.Petersburg on Friday, TRT Haber TV Channel reported.
According to the Prime Minister, the world powers must not remain silent before the crimes committed by the Bashar al-Assad's regime against his own people.
Turkey's support for the military operation in Syria does not imply that Ankara is eager to war in the region, but on the contrary, the purpose of Turkey is to end violence in Syria.
Some Western countries, as well as Turkey have already supported intervention in Syria following another escalation of the situation there. On August 21, Media outlets reported on a large-scale deployment of chemical weapons near Damascus by Syrian Government Troops. Over 600 people were the victims of the attack.
Earlier, the US president declared that the use of chemical weapon is a "red line" for the Assad regime. Media outlets reported on the preparation of the Navy and Air Force of these countries to begin intervention.
The clashes between the government forces and armed opposition have been continuing in Syria for over two years. According to UN statistics, the total number of victims of the conflict in Syria is more than 100,000 people. The Syrian authorities say that they are opposed by well-armed militants.
