Meeting with his Costa Rican counterpart Enrique Castillo for a working breakfast, Minister Davutoğlu answered questions from the press at a joint news conference. When asked if Turkey ever planned on establishing dialogue with Assad's regime, Davutoğlu responded by stating, "First and foremost, the Syrian regime needs to show the will to make peace with their own public." Davutoğlu went on to express that establishing dialogue with the existing regime would only offer them legitimacy as they continue to stage violence on their own people.
Davutoğlu also stated that the Turkish Republic government and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs were using all channels possible in order to do everything that they can to ensure the safe return of Turkish journalists Cüneyt Ünal and Beşar Fehmi and would continue to do so.
