Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday that his country will “not remain silent” over Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s “crimes against his own people.”

“Every day a large number of innocent children and women fall dead in Syria,” Erdogan said in a speech at the Government Communication Forum in the United Arab Emirates.

“We will not remain silent on those committing crimes against their people,” he said.

“Some people are annoyed with the loud voices with which we confront world problems” but “we will not stay silent,” he added without declaring his future scheme towards Syria.

Early in the revolt, Turkey broke ties with Damascus and backed the violent armed opposition by offering money and weapons.

On February 15, Syrian state media reported that the Syrian government has sent a letter to the United Nations blasting Turkey’s “destructive” role in the Syrian conflict.
