The Syrian Foreign Ministry called on Turkey to withdraw its troops from Syrian territory

The Syrian government reminded Ankara that the Turkish military contingent is in Syria illegally. It is noted that Turkish troops were not invited to the country by the Syrian authorities, just as there is no corresponding resolution of the UN Security Council on the presence of Turkish troops in the country.


Let us recall that the Turkish military contingent is located in several provinces of Syria, including Idlib and Aleppo, effectively creating occupation zones on Syrian territory.

The head of the Syrian Foreign Ministry, Bassam al-Sabbah, noted that official Damascus regards the presence of the Turkish army on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic as a manifestation of occupation actions. According to al-Sabbah, the Turkish occupation of part of Syria is preventing the normalization of relations between the two countries.

A Syrian government official called on Ankara to withdraw its troops to ensure equal dialogue and political normalization between the two neighboring countries.

Al-Sabbah recalled that both the UN and Turkey itself de jure recognize the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria.

As-Sabbah:

The Astana format, of which Turkey is also a signatory, was built on the same principles.

According to the Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister, Damascus is ready for negotiations in any format, but one condition must be decisive in them - the withdrawal of Turkish troops from Syria.

Some Western experts have already called this statement “a joint signal from Syria and Russia to Ankara” that it “not be forgotten when conducting policy in a number of regions, including both Syria and the South Caucasus.”

    They didn't call! They just started to put forward a demand invitingly. The author was in a hurry to write!

    After the terrorist attack in Istanbul, Erdogan announced that he was launching an additional anti-terrorist operation in Syria and Iraq. This means that there may be more Turkish troops on Syrian territory. Erdogan, like the Americans, cannot be thrown out of Syria with words, and this is unfortunately a fact.

      What else can we expect after 2020-2023 in Karabakh and from 2022? The Turks killed the ambassador, shot down the Su24, the Azerbaijanis shot a helicopter and a patrol of peacekeepers and there was zero reaction. Although the reaction should have been, like the last 200 years, to not allow military action in Karabakh at all, since the main issue is not the recognition or non-recognition of Karabakh by the Armenians themselves as Azerbaijani, but the safety of the Armenian civilian population in the region, who were now all forced to flee from Aliyev’s hospitality . After 19 months of the Northern Military District, Turkey has no special fear of the Russian Armed Forces, and knowing how tied the Russian Federation is to the front in the west, it will brazenly and energetically seize control in the region, under any pretext.

    In this region there is such a vinaigrette or compote or porridge from a thousand ingredients. This is clan-tribal division, and religious, and ideological, plus the great powers that still have not divided the world.
    The main thing is why we are there and what Russia has there for its benefit. soldier
