Senior US official briefs Turkey on Syria situation

US pastor faces terror charges in fraught trial in Turkey

"With the joint operation by US, UK and France on Saturday, the Syrian regime received the message that its massacres wouldn't be left unanswered", Erdogan told his ruling AK Party supporters in an Istanbul meeting.

He said the only way to long-lasting peace in Syria was a "political solution", the source added.

Erdogan underlined that Assad regime's attacks with both chemical and conventional weapons should end.

The US and its allies, Britain and France, carried out a wave of strikes against Assad's government on Saturday, a week after a suspected deadly gas attack on the rebel-held Damascus suburb of Douma.

Erdogan and Putin agreed to "maintain decisiveness to reduce tension on the ground in Syria and continue efforts for a political solution", Ankara said in a statement.

But that didn't deter those passionate about science. "We're hitting the ground running as soon as this march is over. Rochester March for Science organizers have put together a Day of Science with a noon rally in Martin Luther King Jr.

Turkey's stance on the airstrikes has been generally positive, but nearly all messages urged for a political solution, reshaping Syria's future without the regime involvement and worldwide determination against the use of violence against civilians rather than conducting a single and limited action.

Erdogan also had an "exchange of views" over the US-led strikes, in a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin late on Saturday, the Turkish presidential source said.

"I clearly declare that the president of the United States, the president of France and the British prime minister are criminals", Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a speech, according to his Twitter account. Turkey was informed about the attack prior to it. "The Incirlik base was not used in the attack".

"The conscience of the global community is in no doubt about that".
