Turkey says power transfer not suitable for Syria

SANAA - Yemen's power transfer deal, which allowed President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down, is no longer a suitable model for a solution in Syria, the Turkish foreign minister said at a news conference in Sanaa on Saturday.

"The Yemen solution was suitable for Syria nine months ago," Ahmet Davutoglu told a news conference in Sanaa with his Yemeni counterpart. "But now, because every country has its own special circumstances and due to the latest developments on the Syrian arena which saw the use of artillery and the air force in bombarding Syrian cities, this has narrowed the room for implementing such solutions."
