Listen to your people instead of accusing others, Davutoğlu tells Assad
ANKARA – Hürriyet Daily News
FM Davutoğlu criticized Syria’s al-Assad over his remarks accusing a foreign conspiracy. AP photoTurkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu slammed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad over his remarks accusing a foreign conspiracy.
“Listen to your people instead of accusing others,” Davutoğlu said yesterday.
“If you don’t listen to your people, instead of killing them, you can’t get their support by TV statements made every couple of months,” the minister said.
As al-Assad makes new promises in his TV speech, those promises further destroy the confidence of the Syrian people since al-Assad does not keep his word, Davutoğlu said.
Elaborating on attacks to Arab League observers in Syria, Davutoğlu voiced suspicion as to whether they could retain their mission. The minister said he had a phone conversation with the Arab League secretary-general over the incident.
