Turkey Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu says the US has assured him of full backing at NATO and the UN over a deadly Syrian mortar attack on Wednesday that killed five people in southeast Turkey.


US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave the assurances to Davutoglu in a phone call, the foreign ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

Also White House spokesman Tommy Vietor separately said, "We stand with our Turkish ally and are continuing to consult closely on the path forward.”
