28 May 2012Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Sunday that democracy was needed in Syria.
The opening of the 21st International Congress of Muslim Communities took place in Istanbul.
Delivering a speech in the meeting, Davutoglu said that the international system has been passing through a great transformation, and there was an important global crisis.
"International global order will be restructured," he said.
Without a solution to the Palestinian issue, peace could not be secured in the Middle East, he said, adding that the United States' vetoing a Palestinian bid in the UN prevented peace in the Middle East.
International economic program should be questioned and its alternatives had to be formed, he said.
Turkey wanted what it wanted for Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen also for Syria, he said.
