Turkey's Republican People's Party Leader: Erdogan responsible for situation in Syria

ANKARA_ Leader of the Turkish Republican People's Party, Kemal Kilicdaroglu, held the Turkish Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, responsible for the situation in Syria, urging him to respond to the accusations against his government of arming the opposition and sending gunmen to Syria.

Kilicdaroglu said that the Turkish people who waged the first national liberation war in the region cannot accept their government's interference in the internal affairs of other countries, indicating that his party will hold Erdogan's government responsible by the constitution even if he doesn't attend the emergency meeting to discuss the situation in Syria and south east Turkey, where fighting rages between the Turkish army and the Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) members.

The Turkish authorities have denied media access to the area where the Turkish army is using F-16 warplanes and heavy artillery against the PKK members.
