"We are against foreign military intervention in the processes on-going in Syria. It could contribute to start of large-scale war in the region," Mr Ihsanoglu said.
Anti-government protests have been continuing in Syria for nearly a year. Daily reports about deaths of both civilians and law enforcement agencies are received regularly.
