February 8, 2012 17:26

ANKARA - The international community must send a strong message of support to the Syrian people and send aid to residents of the city of Homs, under artillery attack by the Syrian military, Turkey's Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told Reuters.

He said Turkey was ready to host an international conference to support the Syrian people, and to send a message to President Bashar Assad to halt an 11-month crackdown on his opponents.

Davutoglu said that if the UN Security Council fails to protect civilians, then like-minded countries should find ways to end the killing and deliver aid to civilians trapped by military assault, especially those in Homs.
