Turkey would join any international coalition against Syria even if a wider consensus on action cannot be reached at the UN Security Council, foreign minister Ahmet Davutoglu was quoted as saying on Monday.

"We always prioritise acting together with the international community, with United Nations decisions. If such a decision doesn't emerge from the UN Security Council, other alternatives ... would come onto the agenda," Davutoglu told the Milliyet daily.

"Currently 36-37 countries are discussing these alternatives. If a coalition is formed against Syria in this process, Turkey would take its place in this coalition."
