i24 News:  “Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday welcomed US-led air strikes against Islamic State (IS) jihadists in Syria, saying Ankara could provide military or logistical support for the campaign.

“‘I look at it (the air strikes) in a positive way. It would be wrong if they stopped. This roadmap should be continued,’ he told Turkish reporters in New York in comments broadcast by Turkish television.”

The Wall Street Journal stated that Turkey’s President Erdogan said Sunday that the release of 49 hostages held by Islamic State had removed the main obstacle to joining a U.S.-led coalition against the extremist group, spurring hopes that Ankara would take a more robust role.
