BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Turkey is “working hard” to prevent the Syrian Army from conducting a planned operation to clear Idlib of militants, during a speech in Antalya, Saturday.
“We are working hard to prevent a new humanitarian disaster and to stop the clashes at the bilateral and trilateral level, like yesterdays meeting in Tehran,” stated Cavusoglu.
“We will keep working hard to prevent new migrations, to prevent people to leave their homes and to prevent hundreds, thousands of people to die. If we stop, no one would care about this subject,” continued the Turkish Foreign Minister.
“Everybody’s common rhetoric, whether they like us or not, is that ‘if this [Idlib operation] can be prevented, then it is Turkey that can do [prevent] it,” he added.
