Kerry: Erdogan is ready to close the border with Syria

56
The US foreign minister, John Kerry, said that a common language was found with Turkey in terms of the need to close the border with Syria. According to Kerry, the military (the United States and Turkey) “have already begun work on this” (at closing the border). We are talking about the Turkish-Syrian border, the length of which is about 100 km. It was through this section that insurgents entered Turkey from the Syrian territory in order to “lick” wounds, and smuggling oil flows were sent and sent using multiple tank trucks.


Kerry: Erdogan is ready to close the border with Syria


RIA News cites a Kerry statement:
It remains to close the 98-kilometer section of the border, we have full agreement without having to discuss the consequences of how to act to close this section of the border. President Erdogan intends to do this. We will work together on this, we are going to hold the necessary consultations between our military to do it.


Earlier in the United States stated that without the closure of this site, "the struggle with the IG can be delayed."

Attention is drawn to the fact that the site, which is allegedly not controlled by Turkish border guards, began to pay particular attention after publishing material in the Turkish newspaper Respublika about the dispatch by the Turkish intelligence service weapons the militants in Syria, as well as after the statements of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin that the columns of gasoline tank trucks on an industrial scale supply contraband oil from Syria to Turkey - to large ports.

Recall that after the publication of the above-mentioned publication, the editor-in-chief and correspondent of the Turkish newspaper arrested the Turkish President Erdogan’s personal lawsuit, which now requires life sentences for journalists.

Ankara is clearly trying to whitewash itself with statements of readiness for measures to “close the border”, although in fact, by closing one section of the border, Turkey will immediately “stop controlling” another in order not to lose the channels of “live” communication with the militants in Syria.

    Close? In my opinion, he is preparing not to close, but to cross it ... so that the Mi-28 anti-tank helicopters catch a glimpse of the news for good reason, oh no wonder.

So all this is diplomatic boltology - they say, America and Turkey are united in the fight against IS! Bluff, in short! But under the guise of this build up shock group for the invasion - it is possible!

    Licking the wounds is understandable, which is difficult! And in terms of not letting caravans of cars, so .... there can’t be thousands of roads. Usually there are several for transporting heavy vehicles, especially among mountains. Closing such roads does not require extra effort! It seems they are driving a fool.

        Where did you get it? Kerry says that in essence, when the border is taken under control by the Turkish military, it’s easy and quiet to establish ways to deliver terrorists to Syria, as well as continue to trade DAISH oil with impunity. The calculation is simple, the bet is on that our VKS will not hit regular Turkish units that will control this section of the border.
        And therefore, the Syrians, it is necessary as soon as possible to take control of this border line themselves.

    The whole piquancy of the situation is that the maps of the area that the Turks are supposedly going to close with the Americans on the maps of Syria and Turkey do not match.These conclusions slip among many political scientists, including American ones.
    That’s why all the cheese goes on whether or not su - 24 crossed the Turkish border, so Perdogan says that the Russian Aerospace Forces are bombing some Turkoman, and therefore the Pentagon says that the Su-24 type crossed the Turkish border and the Russian Federation says it didn’t cross .
    It follows that the overlap of the Syrian-Turkish border section (98 km) will occur according to the cards that the Turks and Americans have. It follows from this that the Turks are conducting a military contingent on the territory of Syria, namely, on this 98 km section.
    Yes, as it was said correctly, the Turks will close one section but immediately open the second and this can go on for a very long time.

    "Закрыть границу" могут только те, кому эта граница действительно нужна закрытой. То, что провозглашает Керри - профанация в расчете на тупого гейропско-матрасного обывателя. Пока к границе не выйдут сирийские войска разговаривать не о чем. Впрочем, думаю, что даже полная изоляция вшивых от Турции результата не даст. Все то же самое можно делать и через Ирак, разница лишь в том, чьи родственники будут гешефт снимать.

    In my opinion, only competent resolving the Kurdish issue can help the real defeat of the lousy. Otherwise, they just crawl through the cities and towns of the entire planet.

    In practice, this decision means that Turkey will tighten

    The border with Turkey must be closed, and Syria must do this. What Carrie is talking about means the entry of Turkish troops into Syria and the further bombardment of the Syrian side. I understand that the Syrian army is exhausted, the Kurds can really help. For this reason, the Kurds must be supported, especially as it is seen from the media, they do not claim to be a separate state. Daish is an enemy of both the Syrians and the Kurds. Turkey is the mortal enemy of Syria and the Kurds.
    Daish is the weapon of the enemies of Syria, the enemies are Turkey, the USA and some other BV countries. They already divided Syria by the forces of terrorists of all stripes brought up by them, but our VKS prevented the legalization of this section. Now they are looking for an excuse in order to finish what they started and talking about closing the border is the catch.

    I hope that the overlap does not translate into joint protection of oil convoys.
    And then, to this tune, the Americans may well take over
    escort and protection of dumplings to the tales of
    that these are humanitarian convoys for oppov.
    Maybe ours therefore expand the fleet of aircraft,
    because they understand what is needed up to this point
    destroy the way and means of delivery of Igilov oil.
