Ankara declared readiness to resume military operation in northern Syria


The Turkish Foreign Ministry, commenting on the situation in the north of Syria, noted that they could resume the previously suspended Operation Source of Peace. Recall that this military operation by the Turkish army was suspended after negotiations by the Turkish side, including with the Russian Federation.


According to the head of Turkish diplomacy Mevlut Cavusoglu, Ankara is ready at any time to go on the resumption of military operations in Syria.
The Turkish Foreign Minister noted that the Turkish army would take this step if the United States and Russia “did not fulfill their obligations and did not withdraw Kurdish armed formations from the 30-kilometer zone along the border in the north of the SAR.

Cavusoglu:

It must be noted that today Washington and Moscow have not fulfilled their obligations in this regard. If there is no result, we ourselves will do what is needed in this situation.

These words of the Turkish minister indicate that in addition to Washington, Moscow also promised the Turks the withdrawal of Kurdish armed formations from the mentioned 30-km zone in the northern part of the SAR.

Earlier, during a meeting between Vladimir Putin and Recep Erdogan, a memorandum was signed that provided for the introduction of Russian military police and Syrian border guards to the north of the SAR. They, as it turns out, were supposed to “facilitate” the withdrawal of Kurdish armed detachments from the border line. After some time, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation announced that the armed units of the SDS-YPG-PKK had left these areas ahead of schedule.

    After meeting with Trump, some misunderstandings went. For some reason, immediately comes to mind Erdogan-Lukashenko.

      some misunderstandings

      There isn’t any kind of misunderstanding about Gennady. Kurds still can’t understand that the CIA’s protection has ended, and impunity will not go away even in such trifles as provocations with patrols. The Turks are sleeping and they see that Russia would give the green light to continue the military operation. Only superiority in the air, fear of the MTR and the respect of Russia as a whole keeps them back, because the Kremlin knows that they have a carrot and a stick for Turkey, and it will most likely happen if the Turks start shelling the most militant Kurdish formations, which means Russia will not mind.

          But you don’t see that this is a special provocation. And someone will answer for it. Russia will simply give unofficial approval for the bombing of Kurdish positions. Turkey is now hammering all NATO countries and the United States and its allies, and only Russia spits on them and supports them Turks both economically and in the military industry. The Turks understand this and will do everything with an eye to the Kremlin. They have no greater ally there than Russia. Putin has brilliantly built everything in the Middle East and so far, thank God there is no misfire.

            Having said A, say B, too - then tell me directly - Turkey is behind the Kurdish attacks on our policemen. Because Turkey receives thanks to the provocation of carte blanche for an operation in northern Syria.
            Or maybe not quite like that?
            Provocation is Kurdish bargaining, now they are trying to bargain for themselves the maximum possible autonomy with the right to preserve their armed forces, in fact they want to participate in the division of Syria on the "rights of the winner", but there was no victory. In the media, what poor unfortunate people they are - they are all betrayed, white helmets are actively working.
            And they are not afraid of further escalation - on the contrary, they pump it up.

              Behind the attacks of Kurds on our patrol is the one in whose interests to create instability in the area. The main three CIA of the USA, (or) MI-5, may be Mossad, but I am inclined to consider that it is the Americans who act. Moreover, they are quite fruitful with the Kurds they still work, and the words of some Kurdish leaders that they threw them are not just throwing dust into the eyes of the United States.

            Colleagues, I don’t understand what you’re breaking spears about. We are talking about armed formations, not about provocations of purchased personalities and attacks with stones! If Cavusoglu says that the armed formations are not withdrawn, then it is so, all the more ours do not mind it. But why - this is a question just for mattresses, obviously because of why the breeding of the parties in the Donbass is not carried out.

          Turks will solve their problems with our hands. Feel the tone: "Russia and the United States have promised the withdrawal of the Kurds." Duc, come on, Russia, take the Kurds as you want.
          From the Turks we have demands and threats, from the Kurds - stones and incendiary mixture. Does it seem to me alone that something is wrong?

        Where did you see it? The correct saying is, don’t do good, you won’t get evil .. The Kurds didn’t understand what Turkey would do to them, they must give it up and let them throw stones at the tanks.

          Oh in the gentle policemen threw a stone. Initially, it was declared that Russia defends Syria and Assad, well, about the distant approaches. And now they are partnering with Erdogan and excuses are the Kurds themselves to blame. And the Kurds are guilty only of wanting independence and their united state.

            It is a pity that no one translated for them the old Russian proverb: "From good - they are not looking for good."

              what do the terrorists have to do with it? Judging by the events of the terrorist, the one on whom the bomb fell. The Americans started this mess for the sake of oil. The Kremlin is connected for the sake of oil, Assad no one remembers at all. And now the Turks have an official opportunity to grow zemlyatsemu. The Kurds cooperate with everyone who promises them statehood. The Kremlin could fit in here, but relied on Erdogan.

            Not police officers, but a patrol of the military police of the Russian Federation. And judging by the comments, you would have stood in the forefront of the policemen (of those). Ancient Slavic symbols will attach to the author, will get all sorts of gardomir, radomir, etc. and they think everything, any nonsense can be written, since I am now a Slavic Aryan. And the fact that military police risk their lives so that this arias could write calmly and not fly into the air from a terrorist attack when going to the store, this aria does not think. The Russian Federation utilizes barmaley at distant approaches, which is bad here. The Kurds of independence want, but what did they forget that recently someone who wanted Ichkeria, independent of the Russian Federation, is also a normal situation? The Kurds made their choice when they fell under the interventionists from the United States and participated and are participating in the destruction of their homeland, of course not all Kurds but a significant part of them. As for the partnership with Turkey, from the very beginning the supply of the Russian army went through the Bosphorus, if the Turks wanted, they could put sticks in wheels even then. At the moment, the Russian Federation and Turkey are situational allies, in the future the map will fall, but the Arians probably don’t think that the southern flow to Turkey is being laid, nuclear power plants are being built in Turkey, is Turkey purchasing it too badly? Or the Arians want the Russian Federation to be on the counter with the second largest NATO army, the Arians probably only dream of Kurdistan, or maybe the author needs to be changed. The symbols on the author are ancient, but you cannot think in the long term, in geopolitics the time scales are not the same, for you it is 400 years, and for the strategy of the state it is literally "after tomorrow". In 10, everyone said that Assad Kirdyk and Americans in Damascus would set up their base, and after 2015 years everything changed, and what will happen after 4 years, when gas flows to Europe through the South Stream, Akkuyu will work without speaking about S4, etc. . Turkey wants to refuse it? Yes, it’s better to refuse from NATO if they push.

                What was announced is good. This legitimizes our position there.
                But you also have to understand - today Assad, tomorrow someone else, Russia in Syria is solving primarily its problems, and the problems of the Syrians - insofar as. Where our interests coincide - there the media will shout together about how much has been done for Syria, and where it does not coincide. Russia will not lift a finger for free.
                And what is justice? And the fact that such a hefty multi-vector Assad, with his wagging, led Syria to where it is now. And now he is ours - and he will not go anywhere.

    It’s just that it doesn’t reach anyone ... although it’s more likely that they don’t care, that the big Ms, is only temporarily postponed! And if our frankly tired of watching and getting a big mess in the territory for the order on which Russia signed up, everything can continue in a new way.

      There have been many times argued why Russia: 1) does not shoot down Israeli planes; 2) does not strike at captured oil fields; 3) does not drive away the Americans .. For it was said - we are there at the request of the Syrian government in order to preserve its statehood and power of the legally elected President Assad. I mean, we kind of fought there as soon as we promised ISIS .. And whoever bites off something from the Territory there is a drum for us .. Such Jesuit logic led to today's shame. So why do you think we should fight the Kurds? They specifically have nothing against Assad. They just want a piece of the country. And Turkey has nothing against Assad. She also just wants a piece of the country. Yes, in general, the Americans have nothing against Assad ... they have already bitten off the oil fields. But Assad can now sit quietly on the ruins of the country, occasionally hiding in a bomb shelter near Damascus .. - because Israeli bombs and missiles still fly into the city for some reason .. And so, hand on heart, and the Assad’s Israelis do not need anything - let him sit by himself ... If only he is not very friendly with Iran .. But we are not obliged (as it turns out) to protect the country of Syria from everyone. And what is "defending statehood" of Syria, for example, I did not understand .. If this is not the integrity of the country, then something? Assad family? Well, take him from there to the cottage near Moscow and let him live for himself ..

      Everything is complicated there. Kurds are forced to completely abandon their aspirations to obtain any status of "Kurdistan", with the possible exception of some kind of autonomy and that with greatly reduced rights. Before the beginning of the b / d forces of Turkey to create a security belt 30x400 km. the situation with the taking of these territories under the control of Damascus generally came to a standstill and only moved when the Turks began to beat the Kurds. These “eagles” were earlier offered to turn to Damascus and participate in the creation of a new constitution that takes into account Kurdish “wishes”, but without a “kick” they were in no hurry to do this and relied on mattresses, supposedly this roof will allow them to muddle their interests. Ankara began to crush them, Russia began to offer ways of a peaceful solution, Damascus began to demonstrate a willingness to take them under its wing - the usual tactic of "Bad cop, good cop." Everything seemed to go according to the scenario, but mattresses and Kurds climbed in again with their carrots, raising their fifth point from two chairs, again decided to sit on them at the same time and now they are turning their eyes in different directions. Probably, given the fact that Assad is an ophthalmologist by profession, the Kurdish eyesight problems were quickly examined and Ankara again offered a recipe for restoring visual acuity, through the familiar “we will beat”. Interestingly, Damascus received an appeal from the Kurds yesterday about their readiness to have a hearty and hearty chat over a cup of tea, even without a sorbet.
