Ankara calls on Washington to put pressure on the Syrian Kurd formations so that they move east of the Euphrates, reports RIA News Statement by Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmush.

Ankara does not believe the reports of the withdrawal of the Kurds to the east of the Euphrates and asks Americans to put pressure on them




“We would like to see US pressure on the PYD (Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party) in order to advance east of the Euphrates. It would be very effective if we carried out this operation together with the US forces, "
said Kurtulmush.

Earlier, France-Presse, citing a source in the Pentagon, reported on the withdrawal of all Kurdish formations in northern Syria to the east of the Euphrates River. However, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said that he did not trust sources and doubted that the Kurds had complied with the demands of Ankara.

Recall that last week the Turkish army launched Operation Euphrates Shield against the IG with the participation of the Syrian opposition and the Western coalition air force.

On Monday, Ankara issued an ultimatum to the Kurds, demanding to move eastward from the Euphrates.

    And on what basis are the Turkobes generally rummaging around the territory of Syria and dare to make any demands? Their place is near the well-known latrine.

      "Shield of the Euphrates against IS with the participation of the Syrian opposition and the Western coalition air force." - It seems to me that this has a declarative character of the war declared by Turkey against IS, but in practice the Turks mainly focused on the armed struggle against the Kurds, and in this Erdogan and IS, it turns out de facto, allies! And the United States and the West put on the Kurds - using them as a lever of pressure on Ankara ... Indeed, the East is a delicate matter! I think the position of Russia is correct - there are no special declarations: neither "for" or "against" - we work calmly on terrorists of all stripes of the Aerospace Forces and watch how Erdogan covers the United States, spits in the direction of Merkel and tries with all his might to dismember the Kurds, who, using a complex political arrangement, are merging their Iraqi, Syrian and Turkish enclaves closer and closer to Greater Kurdistan!

        Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will meet with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Moscow until the end of September, Lebanese newspaper As Safir writes.

        According to information, the meeting of the Turkish and Syrian presidents will be held between September 18 and 22. The Lebanese publication writes that during the visit of Turkish leader Erdogan to St. Petersburg on August 9, the Syrian delegation was on a visit to Moscow.
        Recall precisely after the negotiations of R.T. Erdogan with Russian President V. Putin, official Ankara diametrically changed its position regarding the fate of the President of Syria. Turkish officials said Ankara would no longer insist on the resignation of Bashar al-Assad and expressed readiness to work with him.

      Well, on exactly the same basis as all the other members of the American coalition, and there are dozens of countries.
      In fact, if you take it legally, except for Russia and Iran, all the rest are illegal there. And this is the norm.

      Vanya, a unique commentary, somewhere on the level of the 8th grade of the modern Lifanov school. But do not be discouraged, experience as well as sexual impotence comes over the years. Read something from Pikul or at least Dostoevsky, you look and develop a "gray muscle in the head."

      The Kurds may begin to peel off and the east coast. Now there are several events:
      - the Arab part (up to 400 fighters) of the SDF switched to the pro-Turkish forces, throwing the Kurds. In response, the Kurds took hostages 20 more soldiers of the Arab SDF, who did not have time to escape and threaten them with a security ax for treason.

      - The Turks began to form the armies for the liberation of the eastern bank from the Kurds. For example, yesterday the "Sons of Hasake" brigade appeared, which set the task to expel the Kurds and the regime from Hasaki. Yesterday in Kobani, the Turks did not bother too much, they dispersed the Kurdish demonstration in bursts through the crowd - 2 corpses and more than 40 wounded.

      Who is there to shoot. There is a small contingent of Turks. There was simply an agreement with the United States, which the Americans are not fulfilling.
      And Turks are being killed in Turkey, today 8 Turkish soldiers were killed, 11 terrorists have caught up in the mountains, and the rest are being searched.

    Syria will be torn to pieces, Turks, motley bandits, the USA, Kurds, the exhausted Syrian army are operating there, and Russia has been bombing the whole hodgepodge for a year. It seems that after a few years the Syrian army will end, because there, unlike the Turks, there are no reserves of Kurds and bandits, from Syria Syrians will remain Damascus with suburbs, where after Assad’s departure a pro-Western character will come who will ask to remove the Russian base. request

    And what is the connection between the immigrants from Crete, whom the Jews called "plishtim" - "invaders" and the Arabs who began to use the name "Palestinians" only since 1964. In fact, before the rise of Israel, it was the Jews who were called "Palestinians."

      Aron, hello! I’m interested in your information, because I’ve never heard of it before. Can you tell us something more about the people from Crete? They were called Flistimans? Reading the Old Testament, it seemed to me that they lived there before the Jews came from Egypt (exodus).

        They argue where the Philistines came from. Whether the Greeks who moved
        to the south on foot after the fall of Troy, either sailed from Cyprus or from Greece.
        But over everything: customs, weapons, armor - the Greeks.
        Jews fought with them for several hundred years, but all failed, honestly admit.
        But the Greeks from the coast inland did not meddle too much.
        Jews were friends with the Phoenicians from Lebanon (they are also Carthaginians),
        those on ships transported goods from Judea to other countries.
        And with the Philistines, they were all-time dogs.
        In any case, they have nothing to do with the Palestinian Arabs.

    Turkish army opens a new front in Syria
    As part of the Shield of the Euphrates military operation, Turkey opened a new front in Syria: Turkish tanks and heavy equipment crossed the Syrian border and went to the area of ​​the city of Al-Rai, reports the publication Hurriyet.
    The report notes that Turkey sent Leopard tanks in addition to the M60T tanks previously deployed in operations in Syria. In addition, several armored vehicles with Kirpi mine protection were deployed on Syrian territory.
    The new war zone is located about 25 kilometers west of where Turkish troops crossed the border with Syria during the first operation, which began in August.
    Reuters also reported that Turkish tanks and howitzers crossed the Syrian border, citing Dogan agency information.
    Operation Shield of the Euphrates began in northern Syria on August 24. Then Turkey introduced about 40 tanks into the country's territory, which were supported by about a thousand Syrian rebels. Official Damascus then accused Ankara of violating the sovereignty of the country.
    On August 6, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numar Kurtulmush stated that his country had not entered the war by launching the Euphrates Shield operation in northern Syria and did not intend to maintain its military presence there. According to him, "Turkey is not an invader." At the same time, he noted that the Turkish army does not intend to “watch” if there are threats against it in the region.

    “All interested parties, including Damascus, were informed of the Shield of the Euphrates.” We are sure that Russia informed them about this, ”Kurtulmush said then. The Deputy Prime Minister assured that the purpose of the operation is to cleanse the region of the “Islamic State” (the organization is banned in Russia). He also said that Turkey intends to prevent the groups of Syrian Kurds from organizing a corridor that will divide Syria.
    The White House condemned the invasion: Deputy Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security Ben Rhodes said after that that Turkey’s actions in the areas where the Syrian opposition are located only aggravate the situation in the region. Rhodes also said that US President Barack Obama will meet with Turkish President Recep Erdogan on September 4 at the GXNUMX summit in Beijing.
    The Russian Foreign Ministry urged Turkey not to attack the Syrian opposition and the Kurds and "selectively select targets in the course of the anti-terrorist operation" in Syria. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Moscow is in favor of coordinating all military operations in Syria with the country's legitimate government. A.

      IMHO, the Turks have outplayed both us and the amerikosov. They bend their line. If before the "warming" of our relations with them, they were afraid to burst into Syria, then after Recep's bows to his friend Vladimir, they brazenly flooded and do on foreign territory and without invitation what they think well. In this situation, we are getting mad, and the Americans turn a blind eye (not before - elections, you understand).
