Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. AFP photoTurkey is preparing a new initiative with those countries who oppose the Syrian government, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday, describing China's and Russia's veto of a U.N. resolution on Syria a "fiasco".
"We are going to start a new initiative with those countries that stand by the people, not the Syrian government. We are preparing this," Erdogan told a meeting of his ruling AK Party in Ankara, giving no further details on the initiative.
"The process that occurred at the United Nations in relation to Syria is a fiasco for the civilised world," he said.
