Turkey ready to support military intervention against Syria without mandate of UN Security Council.
Turkey will join any international coalition in the event of a military invasion to the Syrian Arab Republic. This was stated by Ahmet Davutoglu, Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs. It seems that Ankara is very zealous in this regard. The Turkish authorities are ready to support a military intervention even without the mandate of the UN Security Council.

According to Davutoglu, in the absence of a unanimous decision within the framework of a UN Security Council meeting, there will be other options for resolving the conflict.

A U.S. military intervention in the Syrian conflict is becoming more likely. The pretext is the use of chemical weapons in the suburbs of Damascus on August 21st. Washington hurried to place the responsibility for the attack on the government troops.

Turkey, a NATO member bordering Syria, has emerged as one of Assad's most vocal critics during the two-and-a-half year conflict, sheltering half a million refugees and allowing Syrian rebels to organise on its soil.

As a regional power-player and the Islamic world’s sole NATO member, Turkey is likely to play a significant role in any prospective US-backed strike against Damascus.
