ISTANBUL- Turkish Defense Minister Ismet Yilmaz denied a report that some Turkish soldiers had entered Syria at the weekend and said Ankara was not considering sending troops into the neighboring country, state-run Anadolu Agency reported on Monday.

Asked about the claim in a Syrian foreign ministry letter to the U.N. Security Council, Yilmaz told a Turkish parliamentary commission "it is not true." "There is no thought of Turkish soldiers entering Syria."
