(AFP) Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said the West was breaking promises in Syria, accusing Ankara’s partners of backing “terror groups” including ISIL ‘jihadists’ in the country.
“The coalition forces are unfortunately not keeping their promises,” Erdogan said at a news conference alongside visiting Guinean President Alpha Conde.
“Whether they do or they don’t, we will continue along this path in a determined way. There is no going back on the path we have set out on,” he added.
Turkey has been supporting the terrorist groups in Syria since the inception of the crisis in 2011 in an attempt to topple the government and achieve certain colonial goals.
