Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 10 / Trend, A. Taghiyeva /
Turkey's position on the Syrian issue is based solely on peaceful principles, Turkish Defense Minister Ismet Yilmaz said today, Anadolu agency reported.
According to Yilmaz, the information disseminated by the media that aid for the Syrian opposition is being transported through Turkish airports is wrong.
The minister noted that some countries appealed to Turkey for assistance in the delivery of humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees in other countries.
Clashes between 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. Syrian authorities say that they are opposed by well-armed militants.
