Turkish PM calls for Kosovo-like intervention

imgTurkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said the U.S. statement on a “limited” military action against Syria will not be enough to satisfy Ankara, pleading for an intervention similar to the one in Kosovo in 1999.

“A limited military action will not satisfy us. It [the intervention] should be like in Kosovo,” Erdoğan said on Aug. 30.

A few minutes earlier, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry had given signs during a press briefing in Washington that the United States would act following last week’s chemical attack in Syria, but said its response would be “tailored.”

Erdoğan told reporters that the intervention could take place next week.
