Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister, Numan Kurtulmus, has hinted that his country could take a different direction to its Syria policy where since 2011 it has supported anti-Assad terrorist and rebel groups to overthrow the longtime Syrian President.
"It is not right for us to impose any decision" on the Syrian people the Deputy Prime Minister said, hinting for the first time that Turkey had engaged in a flawed policy.
The staunch and powerful ally of Turkish President Erdogan said that Turkey's policy towards Syria contained graves mistakes and should be rectified, whilst reiterating his country will not side with Assad, but allow Syrians to make their own decision.
He did however emphasize that Turkey will act as a guarantor of decisions made at the new round of Syrian peace talks.
