TURKEY: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday welcomed the US air strike on an airbase of the Syrian regime but said it was not enough and more action was needed.

"I want to say that I welcome this concrete step as positive," Erdogan, a longtime foe of President Bashar al-Assad said in a rally in the southern city of Antakya just north of the Syrian border. "Is it enough? I don't see this as enough... the time has come for steps for a serious result to protect the oppressed Syrian people," he added.
