ANKARA - Turkey will follow the Arab League in imposing economic sanctions on Syria, but setting up humanitarian corridors on the ground to aid civilians is not on Ankara's agenda for now, an adviser to Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday.

France has proposed the establishment of humanitarian corridors to deliver aid to civilians in what would be the first international intervention on the ground in the eight-month popular uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.

Ibrahim Kalin, Erdogan's chief foreign policy adviser, told A Haber TV in an interview that the idea was "not on the agenda right now".

The French idea is for a corridor that provides access from frontiers such as Turkey and Lebanon, or even to an airport where a plane could land or the coast where a ship could moor.
