Syria Condemns Turkish Aggressive and Expansionist Policies in Syria

DAMASCUS, (ST)-The Syrian Arab Republic condemns in the strongest terms the Turkish regime's aggressive intentions, reckless remarks and military buildup at the Syrian borders, stressing that this behavior flagrantly violates the international law and the Security Council resolutions which all call for respecting Syria's sovereignty and territorial integrity, an official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said on Wednesday.

Erdogan's regime's aggressive behavior proves the Turkish expansionist aspirations in the Syrian territories and it can't be justified under any pretext, added the source, affirming Syria's determination to confront the Turkish aggression by all possible legitimate means.

The source pointed out that the Turkish regime's claims about borders' security are belied by this regime's disregarding of Adana Agreement which guarantees the security of the borders between the two countries if Erdogan's government abides by its items.

 The source went on to say that Syria holds some Kurdish groups responsible for what is going on because of their complete subordination to the American policies and schemes, pointing out that Syria has repeatedly warned the Kurds of the danger of these schemes and against being tools to serve the American plans against their country.

Syria reiterates that its sovereignty and territorial integrity are a red line and reaffirms its determination to confront the Turkish aggression by all possible legitimate means, according to the source.

"Syria is ready to embrace all its misled citizens if they reconsider and correct their actions aiming to preserve the country's safety and unity," the source stresses.

The source concluded by saying that Syria reminds that if Erdogan insists on carrying on his aggression, he will place himself on an equal footing with the terrorist gangs and he will completely lose his position as a guarantor of Astana process on finding settlement in Syria.
