Prime Minister Najib Miqati advised Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu to engage in dialogue with Syria to resolve the two countries’ lingering differences, the PM’s press office announced on Sunday.
Miqati made the remark after receiving a phone call from Davutoglu on Saturday night, it said.
The Turkish FM informed the Lebanese premier about the latest information available on the downing of a military plane by Syrian forces.
Davutoglu said Sunday the F-4 phantom jet was shot down in international airspace, 13 nautical miles from Syria which on the contrary has said it took out the plane after it violated its airspace.
Miqati expressed his “solidarity with the families of the missing pilots and hoped that the ongoing cooperation between the Syrian and Turkish forces to find them and the plane’s wreckage would lead to positive results,” the statement said.
“Dialogue with Turkey and Syria contributes to solving ongoing differences and the current situation in the region requires prudence and self-restraint,” Miqati told Davutoglu.
