Turkey 'ready for action' as Syria deadline expires
An eleven:00 a.m. GMT deadline presented by the Arab League to Syria to agree to take observers or confront sanctions has expired today.
Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu had instructed a information convention in the early morning that he hoped the Syrian authorities would give a good reaction to Arab League program on resolving the conflict.
"If it isn't going to, there are measures we can consider in consultation with the Arab League," he mentioned. "I want to say evidently we have no much more tolerance for the bloodshed in Syria. The attitude of friendly and fraternal countries on this matter is apparent."
The Arab League's sanctions on Syria incorporate halting flights, curbing trade and stopping deals with the central financial institution.
Davutoğlu mentioned he was all set to go to a meeting of Arab League foreign ministers that could take spot on Sunday, relying on Syria's reaction. He was also consultating with the European Union, NATO and U.N. Security Council members.
