Erdogan welcomes Syria strikes against Assad regime

"We consider this operation as appropriate", Erdogan told a meeting of his ruling party in Istanbul.

"Whoever the perpetrators they should pay a price".

The U.S., U.K., and France launched airstrikes on the Assad regime's alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria earlier on Saturday. The leaders also emphasized that the lasting peace can only be reached through a political settlement, the NTV broadcaster reported.

"It is not all about the chemicals, more people were slaughtered previously by conventional weapons", he stressed, calling on world countries to put the future of all kinds of weapons on the table for discussions in detail.

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.

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said the strikes had not been launched via Turkey's southern Incirlik air base.

The Turkish foreign ministry likewise welcomed the operation, saying that it "has eased humanity's conscience in the face of the attack in Douma, largely suspected to have been carried out by the regime". Turkey was informed about the attack prior to it.

Both the regime of Syria's Bashar al-Assad and Russian Federation, its ally, have denied all responsibility for the April 7 attack.

Washington believes both sarin and chlorine were used in the attack, a senior U.S. administration official told reporters on Saturday.

Calling on the worldwide community to unite in order to prevent any such chemical attacks in the future, he said: "Efforts to only destroy chemical weapons will not be enough to end the instability in the region".
