Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc says the country has no intention of going to war with anyone, after one of its fighter jets was shot down by Syria last week. He says it would only act in accordance with international law.

The statement was made after a seven hour cabinet meeting to discuss the incident. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is expected to address legislators in parliament on Tuesday and reveal what measures Ankara will take against Damascus for downing the plane. Turkey said the jet mistakenly strayed into Syrian airspace on Friday, but was quickly warned to leave by Turkish authorities and was 1.6 kilometres inside international airspace when it was shot down.
