Ahmet Davutoglu, the Turkish Foreign Minister accused the Syrian President of making "empty promises" of peace after Mr al-Assad called on his people to rise up against the rebels.
His remarks are just repetitions of what he's said all along. They are the same promises he made to us. As Assad no longer has the representative authority over the Syrian people, his words have lost persuasiveness. A transition period needs to be completed swiftly through talks with representatives of the Syrian nation.
