No one can prevent Turkey from launching a new anti-terrorist operation in northern Syria, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Jan. 8.
“Turkey will not allow any terrorist organization to intensify its activity in northern Syria,” Erdogan added, Trend reports referring to the Turkish media.
The president stressed that the statements made by some senior US officials that the operation in northern Syria is directed against ethnic Kurds are false.
“By hosting Syrian refugees, Turkey has never made any differences in their ethnicity,” he said. “Turkey hosted refugees from Syria – the Kurds, Muslim Arabs and including Christians.”
“Terrorism has no national identity,” Erdogan stressed. “There may be terrorists among Turks, Arabs and Kurds.”
The president stressed that national interests are important for Turkey.
On Dec. 12, Erdogan said the Turkish Armed Forces would launch a new military operation in northern Syria against PYD/YPG.
