Turkey - USA: We will deal with threats without waiting for someone else's permission

14
The US State Department sent an appeal to Turkey to refrain from a military operation in Syrian Afrin (Aleppo Province). Recall that Ankara is concentrating impressive forces and assets near the border with the SAR, declaring its readiness at any time to launch an operation against the Kurdish YPG units. These actions, as stated earlier by Turkish President Erdogan, are associated with the decision of the United States to create a “border guard service” in the north of the SAR from among the representatives of the mentioned units.


The official representative of the US Foreign Ministry, Heather Nauert said that Turkey would not be worth taking "steps of this kind." It's about preparing for the operation in Afrin.

Nuerth:
We want everyone there to concentrate on the fight against the "Islamic State" (* banned in the Russian Federation).


Turkey - USA: We will deal with threats without waiting for someone else's permission


In Ankara, meanwhile, said that the preparation for the operation "is not directed against the Syrian Kurds." Information service "Anadolu", referring to the representatives of the government of the country, reports that the purpose of the operation are representatives of armed groups of the Kurdistan Workers' Party. The PKK in Turkey is considered a terrorist organization.

Statement by the Press Secretary of the President of Turkey:
Turkey will continue to take all the necessary measures to prevent threats to its national security, regardless of where they come from - be it Afrin, Jerablus, Manbij, or areas in Iraq. Turkey, as well as before, will continue to fight PYD / YPG / PKK, ISIL * and any other terrorist organizations. At the same time, Turkey does not intend to wait for this permission and itself has the right to choose the place, time and methods of struggle.

    It seems that the Syrian government does not exist; rather, it is completely ignored, that they want something and do it on its territory without asking.

      The United States has just submitted a statement that their plans did not include the creation of Syrian border guard units. So, the Un policy is a policy of tough answers to aggressiveness, it gives good shoots ...

        The United States has created a system of international relations where the only argument is force. Quoting, “I want to ask, you yourself understand what you have done (s)”

        Whatever mattresses say about Syria, this will not be true. They both lie. Their Niy 314zhezh is so confused that he already lives independently without the help of the authors.

      So in general it is. On the other hand, if the Turks hit the Americans, it will only be better for everyone ...

      ... the Syrian government does not exist ...

      It is now extremely difficult for him to protect the Kurds, who see themselves as independent from Syria.
      In order for the videoconferencing and CAA to protect them, the Kurds must clearly state that they are an integral part of Syria, join the Syrian armed forces, refuse to cooperate with the United States, and peacefully demand their withdrawal from their territory of residence.
      And it’s funny, Syria must repel aggression from the Turks, and then the Kurds will declare independence.

    And in Turkey itself, there are no Kurds anymore — have they all been bombed out or kicked out? belay Erdogad really needs an “external enemy”, because its presence helps to manipulate the masses in the direction that Erdogad needs! Just like ukroina! If not for Russia appointed by the enemy, then this power would have been dared! !!

    ---------------------------
    When international law is ignored and defamed, no tools remain besides military force. The United States believes that only money and a rifle can serve as international instruments, ignoring completely historical experience and the existing balance of power. Europe spent many years in wars and came to the conclusion that it was necessary to develop general norms and rules. The US considers this unnecessary.

    A perfectly normal statement by a spokesperson. And what else remains to be done if there is a threat to the state, and it is, as usual with the wrong hands, with the filing of the United States.

    Kapets, a knot was tied up there ... And the further the worse, everyone has their own interests and everyone does not care about the opinions of others and what’s worst is the opinion of the legitimate authorities of the ATS ...
