Armed intervention into Syria 'last resort,' US envoy to Turkey says
ISTANBUL - Doğan News Agency (DHA)
AA photoA military intervention against Syria is the “least desired option” for both Turkey and the United States in the battle to end the Arab republic’s violence, U.S. Ambassador to Turkey Francis Ricciardone said today.
Ricciardone made the comments during a discussion with members of the press at a conference at Koç University in Istanbul today.
"Turkey and United States believe that a military intervention would be a last resort, a least desirable option to reach a solution in Syria,” he said.
The matter should be resolved through diplomatic means and according to international law, Ricciardone said.
"The situation we are in has no easy answers, it won't magically disappear,” the ambassador said. “We are working together toward a solution."
