ANKARA, Turkey – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned the alleged chemical attacks in Syria’s Douma, speaking from Ankara on Tuesday.
“I condemn the one who carried out the massacre in Eastern Ghouta and Duma. I condemn them. No matter who did it, but there is no doubt that those who are responsible will pay a big price for it, for sure,” said Erdogan.
The Turkish leader also said there were ongoing talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on the matter, which are expected to continue in the following days.
On Saturday the ‘White Helmet’ organisation, and other groups alleged that chemical-filled munitions were dropped over Douma on April 7 which led to the deaths of up to 70 people. Damascus has called the claims a “fabrication.”
