Turkey creates a quasi-state in Syria and asks him to finance

66
Turkey has no choice but to act alone, given that "too little progress" has been made in creating a "safe zone" in northeastern Syria, President of the Republic Rajep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday. The Turkish leader is going to create an 480 km depth zone along the 30-kilometer border of the border.





Ankara agreed with Washington to create a "security zone", and in fact - a "quasi-state" in the territory belonging to Syria. According to the Turkish plan, up to 2's of millions of Syrian refugees will be placed in an area that will be "cleared" of the Syrian Kurdish militia YPG, which Ankara considers a terrorist organization.

Having formed a controlled zone in the north of Syria, Ankara has repeatedly warned of unilateral military operations.

We have not achieved any of our desired results east of the Euphrates. Turkey can no longer lose a single day. We have no choice but to act on our own.

- Erdogan said at the opening ceremony of the parliament in Ankara.

We plan to place two million people in the safe areas we will create. We have calculated the costs and will make efforts to improve the situation. Turkey will begin to take steps as soon as the region is saved from the invasion of terror.


While Turkish diplomats, analysts, and opposition forces say Ankara does not want to anger Washington with a military invasion as NATO allies try to re-establish strained ties. The White House is opposed to this step, as it will affect the interests of US-friendly Kurds. At the same time, Erdogan’s comments seem to put a new obstacle in the relations between the two countries and are a clear sign of the next changes in the region.

In his speech, the Turkish president added that Ankara intends to hold a “meeting of international donors” to receive funding for its plans in the area, which, he said, will stretch from the Euphrates River in Syria east to the Iraqi border.

Erdogan has repeatedly called on the Turkish allies to provide financial support to the project. In particular, he mentioned this in his speech to the UN last month. However, Reuters believes it is unlikely that Ankara will receive money for a program that will resettle people hundreds of kilometers from their homes and change the demographic situation in northeast Syria.

            In geopolitical terms, the division of the Turkish and Syrian parts of Kurdistan by the strip of settlement of the Syrian Arabs is extremely beneficial not only to Ankara, but also to Damascus. It is this wedging that is a serious obstacle to the “splitting off” of parts of Turkey and Syria, inhabited by Kurds, from the aforementioned states. Only here I am humanly sorry for the very Arabs whom the Turkish authorities were going to place between a rock and a hard place.

                  God will take him, the Turks actually actively support all kinds of pro-Turkish organizations. Well, if we are talking about ordinary people, then perhaps life in the territories under the Turkish protectorate is far from the worst that could wait for them.

                    The Turkish government most naturally supports in Syria only ethnic Turks - Turkoman. If the Syrian refugees in Turkey for one reason or another decide to populate the territories they offer, then, as they say, they are holding the flag. This will be their deliberate choice, but after this they will most likely no longer have the way back to Turkey. Will Ankara somehow cover them after that? Most likely yes, but only if there is no objection from Damascus. But in this whole situation, I don’t understand what this is. If you look at the map of the settlement of the Kurds (see below),
                    we will see a large area of ​​pink on it. This is the territory of distribution of Kurmanji - the most common of the Kurdish languages. It is the speakers of this dialect that live mainly in Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria. Moreover, more than half of them live in Turkey. The mutual understanding of Kurds speaking Kurmanji with native speakers of other languages ​​of the Kurdish subgroup - Sorani, Zazaki, Gorani and others - was lost due to significant differences in their morphology with similar root composition and phonetics. Those. with a great deal of certainty, we can assume that the very united Kurdistan, which has already been talked about and written about so much, is just one large area on the geographic map above, which pinks the adjacent territories of Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria and no more Togo. And I don’t understand why this whole garden with security zones is needed if, to cut off the main (Turkish) part of Kurdistan from its rather small parts in neighboring countries, it would be quite possible to get along with just a well-organized border cordon throughout the state border in places of compact Kurdish residence population.

                      As far back as 2016, 200 km of concrete fence was built (out of 900 km of the border with Syria) and the process continues to this day. But there is a long mountain zone in which you can’t build fences. Anyway, the fence is not enough if there is no stable country behind the fence, and there will be armed bandits. Naturally, after peace in Syria, these fences will be the underlined border between the two countries.

                      Well no, I do not agree. Border control is one thing, but taking physical part of the range of residence under physical control, especially in countries plunged into chaos, is quite another. The rotor, in my opinion, is much more reliable.

        The Turkish leader is going to create a zone with a depth of 480 km along the 30-kilometer border of the border.

        Do you think Erdogan harnessed for Idlib for so many years? Damascus will not take the opposition, and there will be no living with Assad or Kurds, it’s time for Turkey to arrange a piece of Syrian pie for itself before Assad returns this piece. It may be too late. But the Americans will still deceive Erdogan, they need Kurdistan from Erbil to the Mediterranean Sea through Idlib. So the game is just beginning with the Kurds at Erdogan.

          Turkey benefits from a unified and indivisible Syria in the context of the Kurdish Rojava.
          In the context of Idlib, everything is not so clear: Turkey is not interested in the emergence of a quasi-state in Idlib, while most of Idlib is controlled by al-Nusra, and it is even more uninteresting to let Assad into Idlib.

            Russia, Iran and Turkey are working on the creation of the Constitutional Council. It reflects the participants from the Syrian authorities to the opposition (without pro-American Kurds). And everything is provided for within the framework of this council, they will agree, you will see, after that, Idlib without war, other Syrian territories will also be submit to the Syrian authorities. The question of time, since the 8 year war created too many problems. The main thing is the intentions that Syria should be whole and not divisible. It should be borne in mind that of the external players who are in one way or another in Syria, not one of them do not have a direct land border with Syria, except for Turkey. And this border is 900 km long. Turkey is simply obliged to protect itself (until stability is established in Syria) to relieve refugee pressure from the shoulders (inside the country of the discontent of part of the population and the opposition’s game on this ) and physically protect the country from the sortie of already well-armed (thanks to the USA) Kurdish detachments. A whole and stable Syria is beneficial for Turkey, especially since after the peace in Syria, in any case, the most Turkey will gain a big win in the economic plan. This will be during the restoration of Syria, as Turkey is the closest country that has a huge construction industry, from the production of all building materials to countless construction companies. Even any construction company from around the world that Syria is invited to restoration of the country, they will also order all the materials from Turkey, since distance, price and quality will play a major role.

        In Turkey, there are 3.6 million Syrian refugees who fled to save their lives and from relatives, from bombing and from different bearded people. The Turks want to return these refugees to Syria, at least 2 million of them. For 8 years, the Syrians have been in Turkey, and the Turks spent on their maintenance is $ 40 billion over this time. For many countries this would not be a burden, but the Turks are also very economically annoyed ... But where to return these refugees if many have lost everything and their houses have been destroyed and they don’t have any property .

              Again, you hang Turkish noodles to a gullible public. In 2016, the EU allocated 3 billion euros to help the Syrians in Turkey. In 2018, another 3 billion. That’s 6 billion for 4 years. And all this money goes straight to the Turkish economy. Refugees pay them to the Turks rents, pay for purchases in Turkish shops, etc., etc.
              PySy. How many hundreds of thousands of refugees were provoked by the Turkish attack on Syrian Afrin and the subsequent ethnic cleansing there?

                "How many hundreds of thousands of refugees were provoked by the Turkish attack on Syrian Afrin and the subsequent ethnic cleansing there?" Kurdish armed detachments escaped from Afrin, which built concrete labyrinths on their lands. Population in its place, do not deceive people. There was no ethnic cleansing and destruction either. That witness saw Afrin, especially since everyone remembers Raqqa, Musul, etc. .b that these cities were turned by the "liberators" Moreover, the population returned to Afrin, who fled from the 5-year "Kurdish" rule.

                  I see that they are talking about billions and to whom they go modestly remained silent. And out of habit, they switched to another propaganda about good Turks and evil Kurds)

                      Well, yes. And you are an example of objectivity). They wrote the sign from Turkish propaganda, counting as usual what would do. By the way, the Kurds were the only ones who stopped ISIS while Erdogan and his son were trading oil with them. Refugees from Afrin who underwent ethnic cleansing by Erdogan and expelled from their land -250.000 if that. 6 billion European money, went exactly to the Turkish economy. This money goes to refugees special credit cards and they spend it on survival in Turkey and not in other countries. The Sultan arranged a business for refugees. He has ruined the country's economy in recent years and is looking for left-wing ways to improve refugee affairs

                        You are far from reality, and from the events taking place in general. You wrote the fig, being confident that you were "right". What I have already written, and there is no desire to prove something to you, since I consider it a useless exercise.

                And, yes, the EU allocated 2 times 3 billion euros, but actually paid once, and not to Turkey, but to its organizations that helped Syrian refugees in Turkey. And Turkey has already spent 40 mln.dol. Honestly answer, Is this comparable, and can this be considered help on a scale of what is happening?

      Erdogan has Napoleonic plans for a long time. There’s nothing to be surprised at.

      Well, what to do. Let Israel dictate something ... Then he (this Erogan) will be a force in BV.
      And so ...

      What was to be expected .. It has long been written here how it will be .. The USA has squeezed out the oil fields and is organizing its own state there, Turkey has looked at this and is also organizing its own state .. Now Israel will squeeze out a little territory for itself ... and our troops they will guard Assad in his bunker .. For in Damascus, after all, are the Israelis quite painlessly bullet? And when all the turbidity after the redrawing of the borders settles, Russia will give Syria an irrevocable loan and begin to build hospitals and schools .. and then, Assad will be replaced and Russia will get in the ass and fly out of Syria ... How many times has this happened?

      Erdogan is trying to realize the interests of Turkey. The problem of refugees from Syria most of all affected Turkey, and it wants to solve it within the framework of its interests. Mualam at the UN demanded the immediate withdrawal of Turkish forces from Syria, but did not demand the immediate return of a couple of million refugees from Turkey. Turkey will solve two problems at once - refugees and Kurds.
      For Russia, all this threatens with image and financial challenges. So far, Russia is coping, but the danger of tearing is constantly present.

      Ankara agreed with Washington to create a "security zone", and in fact - a "quasi-state" in the territory belonging to Syria.

      And who doubted that the "sultan" would not seek, do as he wants? Wishlist, this thing is, they are ... and the appetite comes with eating! until something "complex, indigestible" becomes in the dish much more than the eater wanted! It is necessary .... but what is necessary?

      Turkey has no choice but to act alone, given that “too little progress” has been made in establishing a “safe zone” in northeast Syria

      Judging by this cry of Erdogan, Turkey is failing to expand its territory of influence .. Putin put Erdogan on the hook quite well "didn't get off with tomatoes" hehe
      The flows of weapons and militants through the territory of Turkey with Syria have decreased several times and this is not bad for Russia-Syria! hi
      About Kurds, I look, too, the topic is no longer relevant ..?
