Turkish military presence in Syria is “temporary” – Russia

Russia’s permanent representative to the United Nations Office in Geneva, Gennady Gatilov, said that the presence of Turkish military forces in northern Syria is a “temporary phenomenon,” necessitated by “Ankara’s security concerns.”

“Turkey’s activity in the north of Syria is a temporary phenomenon linked to national security concerns and the terrorist threat,” Gattilov told the daily Izvestiya.

“The Kurdish issue is a very sensitive issue in Syria’s political mosaic,” he said.

“We know that Ankara declares its full support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Syria, and nothing leads us to question the credibility of this position.”

Turkish military intends to launch operation in the east of the Euphrates, as well as in Manbaj countryside Aleppo against the Kurdish organizations that it classifies as terrorist, if not withdrawn by the United States from those areas in the north of Syria.
