In a partly-televised interview on Tuesday with the BBC's Jeremy Bowen, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu reiterated Turkey's insistence on a no-fly zone over northern Syria in an attempt to hinder harm and danger posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) and Syrian government forces.
Emphasizing the significance of protecting civilians in northern Syria fleeing the Syrian regime and ISIS, Davutoğlu said that Turkey will once more push for a no-fly zone to be established in cooperation with the U.S.-led coalition.
Commenting on the accusations that Turkey helps ISIS and other terrorist organizations, Davutoğlu rejected all claims, saying: "This is an unfair assessment and accusation against Turkey for which there are no grounds at all. If there is anybody who has proof of this, they should put it on the table." Davutoğlu further added that on the contrary, Turkey helped the victims, saying: "No. Never. Never. Never. We supported only those who escaped from [Syrian President Bashar] Assad's atrocities, chemical weapons, barrel bombs."
