Turkey says to play more active role to solve Syrian crisis

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim vowed Saturday Ankara would play a "more active" role in the next six months in stepping its efforts towards solving the five-year Syrian civil war, AFP repoted."We say the bloodshed needs to stop".

"Turkey we will be more active in the Syria issue in the coming six months as a regional player. Absolutely not", Yildirim said.

A future political settlement for Syria must not include Mr Assad, the PKK or "Daesh" - the so-called Islamic State (IS) group - he said.

His comments came as the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, has intensified its bomb attacks targeting police and military. Approximately 3 million Syrians are living in refugee camps in Turkey, with many using it as a transit country on their way to Europe.

After Syrian regime jets pounded US-backed Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria for a second day Friday, the Turkish premier said Damascus understood that Kurds in northern Syria have become a threat.

Turkey is opposed to Syria's division along ethnic lines, and Mr Yildirim said all groups including Arabs, Kurds and Alawites should be represented in any new government.

"We may sit and talk [with him] for the transition".

"Today, the USA and Russian Federation also know that Assad does not appear to be a unifier in the long term".

"They have no request for Incirlik", Yildirim said.

He said discussions, however, must take place between the local actors in the war: "Assad's counterparts there are the opposition groups to the regime".

The United States has used the Incirlik base in the southern province of Adana as a highly convenient launch pad for bombing raids against Islamic State (IS) jihadists in Syria since 2015.

"There can be ups and downs in the two countries' relations (but) we need to remove elements that harm our relations", Yildirim told journalists in Istanbul, referring to the Pennsylvania-based cleric.
