BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:50 A.M.) – Turkish Foreign Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Monday evening that the French government’s decision to remain in Syria has “no benefit” to their cause.

Cavusoglu encouraged the French government to reconsider their strategy regarding Syria and leave the country.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, the Turkey-based Hurriyet Daily reported that Turkish Foreign Ministry released a statement saying that their nation’s military was prepared to enter Syria as soon as possible.

The development comes on the heels of reports saying that the Turkish president had invited his US counterpart to visit Ankara, as well as reports stating that military officials of both states would hold a meeting to better coordinate their actions in Syria.

Donald Trump declared that the US would pull out its nearly 2,000 servicemen from Syria as the Daesh* terrorist group had been crushed in the country. The decision was met with criticism from Washington’s European allies, including Germany and France.

The subsequent media speculations suggested that Trump made the move only after being reassured by Erdogan that Turkey would eliminate the terrorist remnants in Syria.
