DAMASCUS, Feb. 15 (Xinhua) -- Syrian Foreign Ministry has accused Turkey of hindering the Syrian political process put forward recently to solve the long-standing crisis, the state media reported Friday.
The ministry's remarks came in a letter sent to the United Nations about Turkey's "destructive role" in the Syrian crisis, according to the state-run SANA news agency.
The ministry stressed that "Turkey has escalated its aggressive stances toward Syria by placing hurdles in the face of the political program aimed to solve the crisis."
It charged that the Turkish government had practiced pressures on the Syrian opposition in exile to reject the political vision outlined by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad last month.
"Turkey has also turned its territories into centers for training, harboring, arming and funding armed terrorist groups, including al-Qaida network," it said.
It called on the international community to shoulder the responsibilities in putting an end to the Turkish government's actions that run counter to the international charters.
