nkara will act more resolutely in Syria, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday.

In his speech that was televised by the NTV television channel, Erdogan noted that the operation is Syria was requiring serious efforts and claiming the lives of Turkish servicemen.

“Yesterday, I had talks with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin. Before that, I spoke with [French President Emmanuel] Macron and [German Chancellor Angela] Merkel. After that, we decided on our roadmap [on Syria],” he said. “We will take more resolute steps.”

He did not say however which steps it would be, stressing only that Ankara “will not bend before global powers’ scenarios.”

“Turkey’s policy in Syria and Libya is not adventurism it stems from the national interest,” the Turkish leader stressed.

The situation in Syria’s Idlib de-escalation zone deteriorated dramatically in late January when Syrian government troops staged a counteroffensive to retaliate ceasefire violations by militants. A larger part of the Aleppo and Idlib governorate’s has been liberated.

Moscow has repeatedly voiced support to these counter-terrorist efforts whereas Ankara claimed that government troops had violated the Sochi agreements on peace settlement. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned about a possible military operation in Idlib.

On this background, militants’ attacks on Syrian government army’s positions have intensified and Russia’s aerospace forces’ taskforce joined retaliation efforts on February 20.

With Russia having decided an interdiction zone for Turkish AF, it might be pretty difficult…
What ErDOG sees as ‘national interest’ is stealing Syria’s, Libya’s and Iraq’s oil fields and Syria+Cyprus’ gas fields. This is intolerable.

Not sure what this clown is plotting but I got news for him and all destroyers of Syria, You will fail. May 13th, 2017 Aleppo was consecrated to Our Lady of Fatima. We have seen Syrian forces retake Hama, redeploy across Northern Syria without battle, Aleppo countryside collapse, and the Southern Idlib offense launch within days. I certainly am not minimizing the strong works, skills, and heroic efforts of SAA and company but all the powers of this world are no match for Mary. Please do not forget to pray for the small Christian community of Idlib surrounded by the… Read more »

If Erdogan’s Turkish troops “step” out of line the Russians will soon sort them out. The funny thing is that before the crisis in Syria starting in 2011 Erdogan and President Assad had agreements to keep the Kurdish problem getting out of hand. Since the crisis started Erdogan facilitating all those GCC/USA backed, supplied and trained jihadis resulted in destabilizing Syria for the last 9 years all the while Turkey bought ISIS stolen oil on the cheap. During the then break up of Syria refugees in the N. of Syria fled to Turkey adding to the refugee problem. Now, in… Read more »
