Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned on Sunday his country would “implement steps” if the violence in Syria was not ended.
"We will patiently follow the process until April 10", Erdogan was quoted as saying by daily Hurriyet on Sunday.
But "we will implement steps" if violence does not stop after that, he added.
The Turkish premier did not specify what measures his government would take. However, Turkish press reported that several scenarios are being discussed, including the setting up of a buffer zone along the border with Syria.
Erdogan also said the number of refugees was increasing.
"The numbers are continuously increasing. We are taking measures, we have no thought of closing our doors," said Erdogan urging the United Nations particularly Annan to take a “stronger stance”.
