Ilnur Cevik, an adviser to Turkish President Erodgan, said on Monday at a conference dubbed “Relations Between Turkey and Russia: From Tensions to Boosting Cooperation,” that Turkey would not have carried out its “successful” operation against ISIS in Al-Bab without Russia’s support.

The conference was arranged by the Daily Sabah newspaper and the Turkish government’s Department of Press and Information.

“Without Russia’s support, we would not have been able to conduct a successful operation in al-Bab,” he said. “If some other country was carrying out this operation, it would not have been successful.”

“The support of the Russian aerospace force made its success possible,” Cevik stressed.

“The Turkish troops have been advancing towards the Euphrates, the operation goes on,” he went on to say. “We are doing everything possible in order to prevent any contradictions with Russia.”

  1. Of course they are praising Russians now. The tourist season is coming, they are desperate for Russian tourists as the Westerners dont go there anymore. However you dont see this praising in the local media, claiming it was pure Turkish victory and very local about the new targets as well: Kurds and rest of Aleppo. They are just waiting for the right time to attack SAA. These guys went to Cyprus to bring peace in 1974 since then they are still there. DO NOT TRUST THEM.

    • With the assassination of Russian ambassador and the New Year’s Eve attack on a night club will surely motivate Russian tourists 😉
      “They are just waiting for the right time to attack SAA.”
      => And kurds too.
      “DO NOT TRUST THEM.”
      => Don’t worry : Tsar Vlad knows what he’s doing and when it come to the EU, this idiot self-illusioned himself : we don’t want Turkey in the EU, especially with the Muslim Brotherhood ruling, invasion troops into Cyprus and the capital-city of Greece under occupation since 1453. A single veto is enough to prevent any entry in the EU, Cyprus and Greece will NEVER accept! His attempts to blackmail the EU all failed. Nobody is fooled 😉

  2. Turkey we will pretend we are fighting ISIS and use it as a front to kill the Kurdish. We have everyone so fooled that we were able to shoot down a Russian fighter plane without anyone being the wiser.
