Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul is shocked with the statements of Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom, who voiced support to the accusations of U.S. towards Syria and who claimed that the Damascus administration supported the activities of terrorist organizations, in their joint press conference on Monday.
Shalom said; Syria allows the activities of terrorist organizations. There is a relation between the Damascus administration and Hizbullah. The Damascus Airport is used for shipments of terrorist organizations. Rather than preventing, Syria is encouraging these terrorist activities. This should absolutely be stopped.
Gul: War should be limited with Iraq
After these words of Shalom accusing Syria of assisting terrorist organizations, Gul said that, “The region is already worn-out and therefore peace should come as soon as possible. Everybody should take action in this direction. Turkey is one of the most damaged countries because of the clashes in the region. Syria and Iran are our neighbors and we are trying to keep our relations at the best level with our neighboring countries.”
