The possible military operation in Syria, the beginning of which is discussed by coalition forces, should continue until the overthrow of President Bashar al-Assad, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, CNN Turk TV Channel reported on Saturday.
"A limited military operation in Syria is not enough. If the operation starts, it should force the Assad regime to relinquish power," Erdogan said.
The Prime Minister also noted that statements of USA Secretary of State John Kerry say that military intervention in Syria will take place before the G-20 Summit, which is to be held on September 5-6.
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.
