Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu has rejected claims that Ankara is preparing to intervene militarily in Syria.
"There is no situation right now that requires Turkey's involvement," Davutoglu told journalists on Friday, when asked about the opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) secretary-general's claim that the government would resort to military operations in Syria.
"Turkey will launch a military operation into Syria tonight or Friday," CHP secretary-general Gürsel Tekin had said on Thursday, adding that he received the tip-off from a "very reliable source."
Davutoglu said the situation in Syria was in flux.
"The balances are rapidly changing in Syria," he said, adding that the regime of President Bashar al-Assad had lost major parts of the country despite support from Iran and Russia, the remaining few allies of Damascus.
Davutoğlu also commented on the recent allegations claiming that Saudi Arabia and Turkey have come to a deal to unite opposition groups in Syria to topple Assad. He said, Turkey has no new strategy with Saudi Arabia and the same cooperation between the two countries is continuing.
