US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu. Clinton and Davutoğlu assessed steps to be taken to bring a halt to bloodshed in Syria and steps against the terrorist organization that wants to exploit the chaos in Syria.
Davutoğlu and Clinton made statements to reporters after their talks.
Davutoğlu said it was time for the international community to take decisive steps to resolve the humanitarian crisis in cities such as Aleppo, which is under daily Syrian government bombardment. Davutoğlu said that activities of the separatist terrorist organization in Syria were also taken up at talks.
"We have a common perspective regarding measures to be taken against terrorist organizations including PKK that want to exploit the power vacuum in Syria" he said.
The operational working group will set urgent intervention plans.
"Significant steps can be taken with the international community for a new Syria without ethnic and sectarian clashes and for a regular transition" he added.
