ANKARA - Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Sunday the United Nations needed to take a clear stance on Syria and send a message to President Bashar Assad not to prevent the distribution of aid.
"If it is clear now that Assad will not do anything new, then the UN Security Council must decide on a stance on the situation in Syria," Davutoglu said, after Assad gave a speech in Damascus.
"The first decision needs to be made on distributing aid to Syrians. People can't find food to eat, wood to burn in Hama, in Homs. A clear message has to be sent to tell Assad that he should not stand in the way of aid distribution."
