Visiting the English capital, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu delivered a talk entitled "Transformation in World Politics: The challenges for global and regional order" at the London school of Economics (LSE), during which he said that despite the fact that the crisis in Syria has been ongoing for over two years the resistance of two nations has resulted in the failure to provide the necessary international intervention.
Davutoğlu said that time is passing fast, however an international response is progressing extremely slowly and therefore even though the situation in Syria has existed for over two years, the UN Security Council has yet to reach a decision on a plan of action.
Stating that every night before he goes to sleep he asks himself whether they have or haven't done enough for the people of Syria, Davutoğlu said, "Because history will hold us all accountable."
"We don't want money from Israel. However, compensation is important because they need to know that they have to take responsibility in international relations. If there is a regional order, then Israel must understand that they are equal to all other countries in this order. They should not look down on others from above and be subject to concessions.
This is an issue of national pride for us. I hope that Israel will understand the new dynamics in the region. Otherwise they will lose out in the new regional order. The new democracies in this region are obligated to hear out their public rather than operate on advice from abroad," stated Davutoğlu.
