ANKARA: (APP) Turkey welcomed the US air strike on a Syrian airbase early Friday as a "positive" move and urged the international community to maintain its stance against the "barbarism" of President Bashar al-Assad.

"We welcome this as positive but... we believe that the Assad regime must be punished completely in the international arena," Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus told Turkey's Fox TV in an interview, quoted by state-run news agency Anadolu.
