Turkish President Abdullah Gül welcomed yesterday the EU decision to lift the arms embargo on the Syrian opposition.

“It’s obvious that nobody can suppress people through arms and the army. In this respect, we welcome the world and international community to stake a claim on [the Syrian] opposition and support them,” Gül said yesterday at a joint press conference with Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki.

Asked about the interference in the clashes in Syria of the policies of Hezbollah and Iran, the Turkish president warned against a “sectarian clash” that could spark in the region.
