Turkey: UN must stop Assad from blocking aid

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Sunday the United Nations needed to take a clear stance on Syria and send a message to President Bashar al-Assad not to prevent the distribution of aid.


"If it is clear now that Assad will not do anything new, then the UN Security Council must decide... on distributing aid to Syrians. People can't find food to eat, wood to burn in Hama, in Homs. A clear message has to be sent to tell Assad that he should not stand in the way of aid distribution,"

he said. (Reuters)
