Government spokesman and Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdağ said the US did not use the Incirlik air base located in southern Adana province in the attacks.

The US, Britain and France hit Syrian military facilities with a wave of joint airstrikes early Saturday in response to an alleged chemical attack blamed on the Syrian military, sparking an outcry from Syria, Russia and Iran.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry has commented on the operation launched by the US, UK and France against the Syrian regime.

Erdogan told May that the only way to long-lasting peace in Syria was a "political solution", the source added.

The statement noted that attacks on civilians with weapons of mass destruction, including chemical weapons, were crimes against humanity.

Thousands of mourners had gathered Wednesday for a public memorial in Soweto, where Madikizela-Mandel lived for decades. Dlamini-Mandela accused the media of being complicit in a long "smear campaign" against her mother.

"The Syrian regime, which has been tyrannizing its own people for more than seven years, be it with conventional or chemical weapons, has a proven track record of crimes against humanity and war crimes".

Erdoğan spoke with the British Prime Minister on the phone to discuss the latest developments in Syria on April 14, Doğan News Agency reported. "The Incirlik base was not used in the attack".

"The conscience of the global community is in no doubt about that", it added.

The talks come after Trump warned Russian Federation over its support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, saying United States missiles "will be coming" in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack.

Erdogan also said the current situation showed tensions had eased, but that he would continue his talks with his USA and Russian counterparts.
