The Syrian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Friday that rejected the U.S.-Turkish discussions about implementing a safe zone in northern Syria.
An official source in the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry told SANA in a statement on Friday that “Syria expresses strong condemnation of the continued destructive U.S. interference in its affairs as it aims at prolonging and complicating the crisis.”
The source added that Syria reiterated its categorical rejection of all forms of the U.S.-Turkish safe zone, which constitutes a blatant aggression on Syria’s territorial integrity and national unity.
The source added that the pretexts being promoted by the Turkish regime in its aggression on Syria under the disguise of protecting its national security are disproved by the behaviors and policies of this regime, which has been the fundamental base for terrorism.
“Syria, which has been confronting all forms of terrorism for eight years, reaffirms the continued efforts to chase down the remnants of terrorism until it is completely eradicated from all Syrian territories along with the efforts exerted to confront all the separatist propositions, which threaten Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the source continued to say.
