Gul Criticizes the International Community about Syria


President Abdullah Gul of Turkey sharply criticized the international community, Thursday, saying that its reaction to the violent conflict in Syria was only verbal and not with action.

Speaking in the city of Reyhanli near the Syrian border, where 46 people were killed in the explosion of two car bombs, almost a week ago, Gul said his country only received symbolic aid for taking care of hundreds of thousands of refugees that came to its territory. He said that from the start of the conflict, the international community merely used the appropriate rhetoric regarding the Syrian problem.
