US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu addressed a joint press conference in Istanbul on Saturday afternoon to address the situation on Syria.

Clinton told the press: "As much as we seek to hasten Assads fall, we also seek to respond to the humanitarian crisis." She reaffirmed the need for a "Russia, China block" to take action in Syria, emphasizing the issue of refugees and human rights.

Clinton thanked Turkey for opening their "borders, as well as their hearts and arms" to the Syrian people.

Regarding Turkey-US alliance, Clinton affirmed the partners have undertaken "very intensive operational planning."

Clinton stated: "We have been closely coordinating, but now we will get into details. Our two ministries and intelligence, military have important roles to play. We have planned for many contingencies, including the very horrible  scenario of the use of chemical weapons."
