STOCKHOLM - Turkey is not providing shelter or support to al-Qaida-linked groups in Syria and will continue to exclude them from its broader support for the Syrian opposition, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday.

"It is out of the question that groups like al Nusra and al-Qaida can take shelter in our country," Erdogan told a news conference in Stockholm during an official visit.

"On the contrary, any such structures would be subject to the same fight we carry out against separatist terrorist groups. We have taken the necessary steps against them and we will continue to do so," he said.
