Syria Demands Immediate and Unconditional Withdrawal of Turkish Troops

“Syria condemns in the strongest possible terms the incursion of Turkish army units into Idleb province, stressing that it constitutes a blatant aggression against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country and a flagrant violation of international law," a source at the Syrian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.

The source added that the Turkish aggression has nothing to do with what has been agreed upon by the guarantor states during the latest round of talks in Astana, emphasizing that Turkey should abide by the provisions of the Astana statement.

It noted that the Turkish troops dashed into Idleb province accompanied by Nusra Front terrorists, which shows clearly the close relationship between the Turkish regime and the terrorist groups, a matter that the international community should pay more attention to and take firm stance on, in order to oblige Ankara to end its support of terrorism which shed the blood of Syrian people and destabilized the region and the entire world.

The Syrian government demands an immediate and unconditional withdrawal of the Turkish troops from the Syrian territories, the source said, stressing that the flagrant Turkish aggression cannot be justified in any way.
