Oct 11, 2012

DAMASCUS, (SANA) – The Information Ministry on Thursday stressed that the Syrian plane which was forced by the Turkish warplanes to land in Ankara did not carry any ammunitions or military equipment.

In a statement, the Ministry said that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's statement in which he claimed that the Syrian plane carried ammunition and an 'illegal' cargo lack credibility, adding that he should show the equipment and ammunition to prove what he said before his people.

Earlier, the Expatriates and Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the Syrian civil plane did not carry any sort of weapons or government goods. the plane contents were already listed on the bill of lading and the payload. the plane was carrying no weapons or prohibited goods in accordance with the unblemished international reputation of the Syrian Arab Airlines.

The Ministry added that Erdogan's statements uncover the fact of the Turkish authorities' involvement in the piracy on the plane which was flying from Moscow to Damascus.
