Sharjah 24 – Reuters: Turkey does not stand with or against any country on Syria and its policy in the region is different from that of Iran, Russia and the United States, Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said on Monday.

The comments by Bozdag, the government spokesman, were in response to a reporter's question about an earlier remark from French President Emmanuel Macron, who said Turkey's support of missile strikes against Syria showed it had "separated" from Russia.

Bozdag said Turkey did not hesitate to work together with any country who defended "correct principles" on Syria.
