The Turkish foreign minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, has defended his government's decision to ban the video website, Youtube.

In an exclusive interview with Al Jazeera, presented here in full, Davutoglu said Youtube had been used to illegally leak a sensitive discussion between Turkish officials about the war in Syria.

He said international companies operating in Turkey must do so within Turkish law.

YouTube is the latest social media website to be blocked in Turkey, following similar action against Twitter.
