The Turkish leader told the two leaders his country "clearly condemned" the use of chemical weapons, a Turkish presidential source said.

The United States, Great Britain and France hit rocket attacks on Syrian government sites Saturday morning, which they believe are used to produce chemical weapons.

Turkey on Saturday welcomed Western strikes targeting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime as an "appropriate response" to a suspected chemical attack that left dozens dead.

Russia, which has also provided critical military support to the Assad regime, has called for an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting on the strikes and said it would consider supplying its S-300 missile systems to Syria to defend against future attacks. "Base Incirlik was not involved in the strike".

Erdogan highlighted the importance of working together with France and Russian Federation to resolve Syrian crisis and importance of not escalating tensions in Syria, the sources added.

Ankara said chemical weapons attacks that indiscriminately target civilians "constitute crimes against humanity" and should not go unpunished.

Turkey is a vocal critic of Assad's regime in Damascus and backed rebels fighting for his ouster. There is no doubt in the global community's conscience on this matter.

Turkey, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally, has long opposed Syrian President Bashar Assad, but in recent months has moved closer to Iran and Russian in seeking to end the seven-year civil war across its border.
