BAGHDAD - Syria's downing of a Turkish plane marks a serious escalation of the Syrian conflict, Iraq's Foreign Minister Hoshiyar Zebari said on Saturday.

"The shooting down yesterday of a Turkish aircraft over Syrian territorial waters - this is a serious escalation and indication that the conflict would have far (a) bigger impact than (on) Syria itself," he told a televised news conference with his Swedish, Bulgarian and Polish counterparts in Baghdad.
