The Syrian war crime evidence proves Turkey's Syria policy is right, said Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister Emrullah Isler, during a televised program Anadolu Agency reported

Referring to the photos released on Monday which show attrocities committed by Assad's forces, Isler predicted that the number of documented cases of torture will increase to 155,000, which will "cause people to forget about the genocide in Bosnia" he said.

Stressing that the meetings the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan held in Brussels on Tuesday went well, "disappointing those who want relations with Europe to go badly", he said. Isler added that the EU did not have any concern about the independence of the Turkish judiciary.

Erdogan held a series of bilateral talks in Brussels with the President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso, and Head of the European Parliament Martin Schulz, along with a quadruple summit on Tuesday.

Touching on the amendment concerning the Supreme Board of Judges and Prosecutors (HSYK), Isler said it was in keeping with the constitution, adding his party did not initiate processes contrary to the constitution.

"The government knows what it is doing. If we make something wrong, the necessary mechanisms will already correct this mistake."

Referring to the anti-graft operations initiated on December 17 and 25 in Istanbul, Isler said these operations aimed to cause crisis in Turkey and were launched to target Erdogan and the government as well as the country.
