Azerbaijan, Baku, March 18 /Trend/
Turkey's prime minister said on Friday that the ongoing clashes in Libya and the unproportional force displayed against innocent people should be halted immediately, Anadolu News Agency reported.
Speaking at a ceremony held in northwestern province of Canakkale to mark the 96th anniversary of "Canakkale Naval Victory", Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan commented on the latest developments in Libya.
"Libya's problems are our problems. How much longer will this bloodshed continue and how many innocent people will lose their lives? How much longer will we hear about the fights between brothers in the Middle East and Africa?," Erdogan said.
The premier noted that Turkey could not remain silent against the ongoing massacres.
"We want the ongoing clashes in Libya to stop immediately and the unproportional force displayed against innocent people to be halted. We call on all the parties in Libya to act with conscience and to think again and again," Erdogan said.
Erdogan also stated that Turkey had always stood by law, democracy and human rights, and it would continue to act so.
