"With the joint operation by US, UK and France on Saturday, the Syrian regime received the message that its massacres wouldn't be left unanswered", Erdogan told his ruling AK Party supporters in an Istanbul meeting. "Those who are responsible for this heinous attack should pay the price".

Erdogan highlighted the importance of working together with France and Russian Federation to resolve Syrian crisis and importance of not escalating tensions in Syria, the sources added. The leaders also emphasized that the lasting peace can only be reached through a political settlement, the NTV broadcaster reported.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country "clearly condemned" the use of chemical weapons since the very beginning, in a phone call with British Prime Minister Theresa May Saturday, a Turkish presidential source said.

Turkey is a vocal critic of Assad's regime in Damascus and backed militants fighting for his ouster.

Presidents Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey and Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation hold a joint news conference after their meeting in Ankara, Turkey, April 4, 2018. Turkey was informed about the attack prior to it.

Erdogan and Putin agreed to "maintain decisiveness to reduce tension on the ground in Syria and continue efforts for a political solution", Ankara said in a statement.

Washington believes both sarin and chlorine were used in the attack, a senior United States administration official told reporters on Saturday.

"The Syrian regime, which has been tyrannising its own people for more than seven years, be it with conventional or chemical weapons, has a proven track record of crimes against humanity and war crimes", it said.
