What politician said this about Syria?

"This is our final word to the Syrian authorities, our first expectation is that these operations stop immediately and unconditionally. If these operations do not stop, there will be nothing left to say about the steps that would be taken. We have been in contact and have repeated our demands and have emphasized our expectations. In the context of human rights this cannot be seen as a domestic issue."

Who said this?

Answer after the jump.

These words were spoken by Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

It is an open question whether Syria would perceive this as a real threat, but this is a much stronger statement than someone saying he is "deeply concerned."
