Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan addressed the people in Akcakale together with head of the Syrian opposition National Coalition leader Moaz al-Khatib. Saluting the crowd, Erdogan said that “it is time for Syrian President al-Assad ‘to get out,’”
“My brothers, more than 100 countries have recognized the leadership of this friend [Moaz al-Khatib] and his team. What does this mean? It means that ‘al-Assad, we don’t recognize you any more, get out’ because leaders who do not get approval from their people cannot remain in power. Unwanted leaders will quit and the ones who are demanded will come to power,” Erdoğan said next to al-Khatib in Akçakale, in which five locals were killed Oct. 3 when they were hit by mortars from Syria.
