STRASBOURG

Members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) strongly supported a written document that condemned Syria over the downing of a Turkish military jet last Friday.
76 parliamentarians from different countries signed the written document prepared by Turkish parliamentarians at a session of the PACE in Strasbourg on Wednesday.
Syria's attack against Turkey was a threat to Europe. PACE is in deep concern after an unarmed Turkish military jet was downed by Syria on June 22. Our thoughts and hearts are with the families and friends of the two mission Turkish pilots, PACE said in its document.
The Turkish military jet was downed although it did not display a hostile act, its identity was clear, and was travelling in international air space. Syria shot down the Turkish military jet without making any warning. The PACE finds Syria's downing of a Turkish military jet as unacceptable and condemns this incident in the strongest terms possible, PACE said in its written document.
Syria's hostile act is an open and serious violation of international laws. The incident shows the Assad regime's violent attitude which is now beyond Syrian borders and threatens regional and international peace and stability, PACE stressed in its document.
PACE stresses that it is in solidarity with Turkey and calls on all international organizations, and especially UN and NATO, to express that such violent attitude can not be tolerated, PACE document underlined.
And, finally, PACE appreciates Turkey's hospitality to the Syrians who have fled clashes in their country, the document also said.
The written document is not binding, however, it is an indication of the strong support that PACE members have extended to Turkey.
