“Ankara attack is a threat to the security of the Arab state, and they do not hesitate to take appropriate action in the face of the Turkish invasion”, the Arab League foreign ministers said in a statement.

“Turkey could face certain limitations, these include diplomatic and economic measures, as well as military cooperation to prevent such attacks,” the statement further said.
