"I want to say that I welcome this concrete step as positive", Erdogan, a longtime foe of President Bashar al-Assad, said in a rally in the southern city of Antakya just north of the Syrian border. "The best way to do this is to start a transition process as soon as possible", said Cavusoglu.

Syrian residents who survived a chemical weapon attack on their town were targeted again in Saturday airstrikes as tensions remained high across the war-torn nation.

"The U.S informed Turkey before it attacked a Syrian base at Friday dawn. The U.S. strike is one-off and limited", said Aaron Stein, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council think-tank. "The destruction of the Sharyat airbase marks an important step to ensure that both chemical and conventional attacks against the civilian population do not go unpunished", he added.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said during an interview broadcast Sunday that Russian Federation has not fulfilled its commitment under chemical weapons agreements.

"Clearly, that requires the participation of the regime with the support of their allies", Tillerson said, adding: "W$3 e're hopeful that Russian Federation will choose to play a constructive role in supporting ceasefires through their own Astana talks, but also, ultimately, through Geneva".

A Saturday airstrike by the US -led coalition killed at least 21 people, including a woman and her six kids on a boat in the Euphrates River, according to activists. The attack occurred in the Shuaib al-Zeker area near where US -backed Syrian fighters have been on the offensive against IS under the cover of coalition airstrikes.
