TUNIS - Turkish President Abdullah Gul said on Thursday his country was opposed to any force from outside the region intervening in Syria, and warned that no regime could survive by using violence against its people.

Tunisian President Moncef al-Marzouki, in a joint news conference with Gul at the presidential palace, said Tunisia was also against non-Arab intervention in Syria but would be willing to participate in any Arab peacekeeping force sent there.

"Turkey is against the intervention by any force which is from outside the region," Gul told a press conference in Tunis. "Such an intervention could be subject to exploitation," he said, without elaborating.

Gul's comments came during a three-day visit to Tunisia as part of efforts to bolster ties in the region in the aftermath of the Arab Spring protests that ousted three North African leaders in 2011.
