Turkey does not want to seize the lands of Syria and does not aim at long-term stay on Syrian territory. This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey Mevlut Cavusoglu, commenting on the antiterrorist operation in Syrian Afrin.
According to him, Ankara more than others supports the unity and territorial integrity of Syria. “There are those who pursue other goals in Syria, seeks to gain a foothold here for a long time,” said Cavusoglu, Anadolu reports.
The Foreign Minister recalled Ankara’s calls to stop supplying weapons to terrorists in Syria: “We warned that the weapons delivered to terrorists threaten Turkey, but we were not listened to. Therefore, Ankara itself eliminates the threat to its national security. Turkey will clean Afrin from terrorists and transfer these lands to the Syrian people. ”
