Erdogan accused Moscow of trying to create a "dwarf state" in the north of Syria

Information Agency Reuters issued a statement by Turkish President Erdogan, which he made during his meeting with Turkish diplomats. Erdogan said that Russia is pursuing in Syria the goal of creating an “artificial dwarf state” in the province of Latakia.


Erdogan accused Moscow of trying to create a "dwarf state" in the north of Syria


The Turkish president, who continues to flirt with terrorists of various stripes, said in his statement that by creating a “dwarf state” in Latakia, Russia “is going to put pressure on the Turkomans”.

After such statements, Erdogan switched to criticism of Iran. According to Erdogan, who dreams of wearing sultan's clothes, Iran is the “hotbed of instability” in the region. The Turkish president said that Iran is "fueling" conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Iraq, "expanding its zone of influence." And the Turkish troops who invaded the Iraqi province of Ninava, according to Erdogan’s logic, apparently create a hotbed of stability ...

Such hysterical rhetoric of Mr. Erdogan is understandable. The fact is that on the eve of this, the Syrian government army achieved major success in the province of Latakia, taking control of the main stronghold of the militants of the Front al-Nusra in this Syrian province - the city of Salma. And the destruction of a large group of militants in Latakia leads to the fact that sooner or later the border between Syria and Turkey will be taken under control by Syrian troops, which will obviously complicate the contacts of the Turkish side with the militants operating in Syria. For Erdogan, who uses the Syrian conflict in his own interests, this development does not fit into the previously developed scenario.

      The famous Tiger commander of the Syrian Arab army received the Russian Order of Friendship at Hmeimim Air Base in Latakia. The award took place apparently somewhere in early January, as the decree on the award of December 25, and his first photos with the order appeared on January 6.

      "Tiger Force" (Eng. Tiger Force; Squad "Tiger") - a special unit of the army of the Syrian Arab Republic. Created in 1982. Designed for special operations using special tactics and tools. The unit's tasks include: reconnaissance, sabotage, counterintelligence, anti-sabotage, anti-terrorist activities, search and capture (destruction) of existing terrorists, participation in assault groups, destruction of pillboxes and strong points of the enemy.

      What can be a dwarf state if the Syrians are fighting there defending their territory. . . interesting in Turkey, people believe in it and assent, or somehow it is different. It seems that Erdogan already considers Iran, Iraq, Syria, what territory can be PERSONAL. Verbally, I didn’t touch anyone for it, My freebie, mine. . .

        The Turks really consider Syria, Iraq, Jordan to be their territories in all seriousness! Until they get along the impudent Turkish face, they will not give up.

          Maybe I'm wrong, but it's probably not about the Kurds. They do not seem to be in Latakia?))) Maybe about the Turkoman? Hence the hysteria?))) After all, it is their fraternal people, and here ours may have offered them autonomy?)))

            Yes . okay . Erdogan is of course a ram. but it is.
            Assad has no other choice but to create Alavistan. maybe all the other ways lead nowhere for him.
            only one problem. Alavistan will block the remaining (Sunni) Syria access to the sea. therefore the war will not end.
            Assad does not have the strength to return Syria. moreover to keep.
            There are 2 options
            1. The collapse of Syria in 3-4 parts
            Alavites. Sunnis. Kurds (possibly Druze)
            2. the preservation of Syria. (without assad). the coming to power of the Sunnis and then, quietly squeezing and oppressing the Alawites.
            Other is not given.

                  Yeah ... and a little bit of Druze and Shiites.))) For him, all minorities fight even the Circassians.))) And about 70% of the Sunnis, I’m not sure anymore.))) Many refugees understand))) And basically they are. But those Shiites from Iraq who arrived for Assad to fight what percentage of them will remain on permanent residence in Syria.))) The big question. Although Assad is positioning himself as the president of all Syrians, it’s not worth all the Sunnis to be credited with Assad’s enemies. There are Sunnis loyal to him in the army as well. They are few but they are. Therefore, the percentage is not in favor of the Sunnis, or let's say so is not overwhelming. It’s hard to say now.

              Namusuyut richly to you))) although the options outlined by you have a place to be. Only in my opinion there is also a third option.
              Given that the interests of the Western coalition are to eliminate Assad and put in his place a puppet government controlled by the West, it will squeeze Russia out of the region, which does not suit Russia.
              Russia's interest in preserving Assad and strengthening its presence in the region is what the West does not like.
              Therefore, resolving the issue in the interests of only one of the parties is at an impasse.
              There remains the option of amending the Syrian Constitution in terms of its federalization, since this option will suit both Russia and the United States. Kurdish autonomy will be created, and, as an option, the Sunni and Shiite-Alavite republics, but within the state borders of Syria, i.e. actually coming section into 3 parts. What will happen there - the presidential or parliamentary Syria is another matter. The changes to the constitution of Syria were discussed both in Russia and in the USA.
              And yet, yes, the interests of Erdogan and Turkey in addressing these issues are no longer taken into account, since, as you said, Erdogan is really a ram))), however, like the one who brewed this porridge

    When he was completely overwhelmed and understands this very well, he began to blame others in order to at least divert his attention. By the way, the attack fell on Erdogan’s hand, who immediately began to explain to the world what a difficult mission in the fight against terrorism Turkey performs. Erdogan’s statements were straightforward from the statements of Ukrainian “politicians”.

    Erdogan makes a reservation "according to Freud." It was he who wanted just such a state in this very province. In general, he already considered Northern Syria his territory, and therefore freaked out with our plane. The positive dynamics in the actions of the SA - it is visible, slowly the natural course of events divides the notorious Syrian opposition into friends and foes - who are fighting with Daesh and who supports them. And the Russian videoconferencing team helps a lot in this division.

    ERDOGAN ascribes his plans to those who stood in the way of their implementation: Russia due to obstruction of the seizure of border Syrian territory, Iran - creation of the Sultanate.
    He knows the vile essence of what he had conceived, therefore he ascribes to those who do not allow them to be realized.

    These powerless screams, obviously, prove that Erdik resigned himself to the impossibility for Turkey to create his own "dwarf" in the territory of the Turkoman, and now he can only grunt from the gateway. Even the "bark" is no longer pulling - just like this: "Hav .. Hav .." wassat

    It is necessary to appoint Erdogan as the chief expert in conducting the genetic examination in the world - he just thundered the explosion in Istanbul, and he already "determined from the remains (pieces of the torn flesh of a suicide bomber) that this is a 27-year-old Syrian such and such," and that he had not " was observed by the Turkish special services as a “patient”? Simply fantastic! But the “miracle” is more “fantastic”, that mostly foreigners and (oh miracle!) opponents of Erdogan himself, who advocate freedom of speech and against censorship and against the connection of Erdogan’s family, suffered ISIS (Daesh), which “sent” its suicide bomber to Istanbul! These “tricks” are now becoming fashionable in the Middle East - everyone wants to bite off a piece of their pie (the territory of Syria and Iraq) and with “stuffing” (oil, gas) , here they are barking and yapping at Russia! Only the brethren didn’t give a tooth to the dog, but it looks like the mind - reason!

    And here is the continuation of the story. An explosion in Istanbul, in which a Syrian "identified by fragments" was already accused, although he was not in the Turkish database! Now, Turks with a calm heart can send troops to any place on the territory of Syria, "to fight terrorism and prevent the recurrence of terrorist attacks" and at the same time they seem to be in their own right. Lucky coincidence with a timely explosion in Istanbul, right?

    Better think about Turkey. Under him, the country is breaking up, and that’s all
    looks into someone else's garden.

    And the destruction of a large group of militants in Latakia leads to the fact that sooner or later the border of Syria and Turkey will be taken under control by the Syrian forces, which will obviously complicate the Turkish side’s contacts with the militants operating in Syria.
    For one, the Turcomanites so beloved by Erdogan will flee to Turkey, I hope our downed aircraft will hiccup for a long time .....

    Erdogan says Russia pursues a goal in Syria to create an “artificial dwarf state” in Latakia province


    And why do we need a dwarf state in Syria, when we have Syria itself as allies? He probably began to read his plan. laughing

    Not, well, I understand, Syria would be worried - well, they could chop off a piece of territory from it (if la-la Erdogan are true - maybe it’s lying!).
    But Turkey is not fucking putting its five cents into the affairs of a neighboring SOVEREIGN country.

    Well, they just forgot to ask you, it’s better to worry about yourself, well, or you can watch the boats from the window, it’s calming, but in Syria we’ll figure out where you get lope.

    Are there any fundamental changes in Syria? Assad is winning? Maybe I missed something?

    And this is probably the principle of the “God-chosen” in blood: the first-Jewish point is always right, the second-point, if the Jew is wrong, see the first point. Something like this happens, and if you specifically “press” it, they simply break off the dialogue. Therefore, I consider it a waste of time and energy to discuss or prove something to the sons of Israel.
