    He added that, if the attacks continue, ''we will do what is needed''.

    He was speaking to journalists prior to leaving for Tajikistan. ''We want peace to prevail and that there be no more deaths,'' he added, saying that without Ankara's intervention in the dialogue with Moscow, ''at this moment the situation would be very different'' and that there would have bene another wave of ''almost 3 million refugees'' from northern Syria towards Turkey, where over 3.5 million Syrian refugees are already.
