Media: Washington requires Turkey to strengthen the border with Syria


"The United States and Turkey have long agreed to better coordinate actions in the fight against the terrorists of the Islamic State." However, the border between Turkey and Syria is still mostly open. Washington proposes to strengthen it, including with the help of its technology, ”writes the publication.

At the end of February, Johnson, the head of the US Department of Homeland Security, should visit Ankara, who is expected to offer the Turks "US border security technologies, including reconnaissance balloons, equipment that determines the type of explosives in improvised explosive devices, and others", the article says.

It is also planned that “the parties will discuss the strengthening of the role of the air base in Diyarbakir in the fight against the IG points in Syria,” the author notes.

Now, according to the newspaper, the border is patrolled by 25 forces by thousands of Turkish military, in addition, local authorities have decided to build a concrete fence at the border.

    the border between Turkey and Syria is still largely open. Washington proposes to strengthen it, including using its technology

    Which side? I suspect that they will try to "strengthen" the Turkish border from the territory of Syria. They want to create a kind of "buffer zone".

      Well, yes, to be near the water and not get drunk, so the Turks will refuse free oil.

        It is interesting, and in what place do the Turks and the USA themselves believe their border between Turkey and Syria passes, that they are going to build their fence without Syria?
        Previously, the Turks washed their border with Syria far in the territory of Syria itself. This will mean the invasion of Turkish armed forces on the territory of Syria.
        I wonder if this "number" will pass to the Turks with the annexation of territory near Syria under the auspices of the United States?

          It goes by. America builds an airbase (military naturally) in Syria without any permission.

        Well, that's exactly what America wants to help with. Igilov oil will be controlled by themselves.

      Rather, the Turks will try to chop off a piece of not only Syria, but also Iraq.

        ... Northern Iraq is the Borzanist Kurds .. hardly ... well, they see Syria as their province ... they got away with impunity the entire 20th century of their arrogance: ... they slaughtered Armenians in 1915, Pontic Greeks in 1916, chopped off the Kara region and Ararat from Armenia in 1920, occupied Iskenderun (Hatay state) in 1938, occupied the half of Cyprus in 1974 ... it’s time to heal ... and hard, so that there would be no mention of such a state as Turkey, as with A brilliant port ... hi

    In the daytime they strengthen the border, and at night the caravans march through it. Even the Americans ask there with their equipment. They probably want to improve logistics. Because the caravans suffer losses.

    Every fence has a gate and a small gate through which, as I understand it, the flow of militants will continue. In extreme cases, the supply of gangs can be established through the fence. Changes in Syria will begin when the power in Ankara changes.

    Does it really require? Yes, Erdagan wanted to put on their requirements. He loves America only when behind its back it is necessary to hide from Russia.

      Erdogan’s clack did not grow on anyone. All that he has grown is the crown. And before the staff, he always creeped and will creep. Eh ... Pavel Stepanovich is not modern in the Fatherland ...

    Well, if the "technologies" are the same as on the Mexican border, then the "entrance yard" on the Syrian-Turkish border will be guaranteed!

    a fairy tale for kindergarten, neither the Turks nor the United States benefit from peace in Syria and the real border is not needed. And 25000 border guards can close their eyes when necessary

    It is not clear what the joke is. Apparently the Americans have already withdrawn their assets across another border.

    What kind of craving is this for building fences? As a "country of victorious democracy" so is the fence around its plot. Apparently this is now one of the main signs

    Concrete fence is the trend of the century. Do Turks have export substitution? Support their builders who are left without work in Russia.

    Another tale of how two foxes were fencing a chicken coop. And as for the fence, it’s better for them to turn to our neighbors, who’ll be skeptical — they’ll take over both Turkish and US funding, well, maybe some kind of wattle will appear there. laughing

    One task is being demonstrated and carried out - to sweeten Turkey, thereby annoying Russia! How well! Turkey, in the fight against the world's evil, has already reached the "orange shit".
    All the actions of the United States and its packs in relation to Russia are similar to the actions of a group of drug addicts who "got on a needle" and can no longer get off it.

    Is it that the staff want to destroy the family business ??? And how, then, to make money with "backbreaking work"? I think the meaning of the message is, it's time to share

    The Chosen One will help make IS's movements across the Syrian border invisible. I admit that they will try to cut the disputed territories. In general, with the beginning of the Pindosovskoy ground (illegal) operation, expect screams that the Russian Aerospace Forces bombed an American convoy with fuel. Or something else similar.

    The United States is already kicking the Turks into a conflict with Russia (it did not work out with Ukraine ..))) In the United States, the rights of Indians and blacks have been violated for a century ... Maybe the "world community" can enlighten on this issue, more specifically "RT to help us !

    "Requires","puts pressure".

    We all believe that they certainly have no right to order. Everything is democratic. ISIS oil - it is produced in the territories that belong to Syria and Iraq, that is, it is not Wahhabi. laughing Turkoman terrorists are potential Turkish citizens, they must be protected. laughing SU-24 - it was loaded with atomic bombs, with the goal of total destruction of Turkish identity. laughing In order to combat ISIS, it is necessary to protect the territories of Syria and Iraq by occupation. laughing

    Straight - require?!?
    And its best strengthening (in American) is to send Turkish troops to Syria and control the border from two sides? )))
    Two-faced American crap!
    Let's see how they "science strengthen"!
    Our military "glue-moment" is always ready!

    And the fence will be built by Turkey as Ukraine with Russia. It turns out that Yatsenyuk and Erdogan are twin brothers. They are fried in the Americans. laughing

    I think it's just that the United States does not want to give this section of the border under the control of the Syrian army. Turkey is the only country whose part of the border is in contact with the territory of IS. This is precisely the "concern." And Erdogan will not close the border until Syria itself takes this section under its control. Closing the border for Erdogan means that his oil business is fucked up.

    They are obsessed with fences and walls. However, they forgot how they howled about the construction of the Berlin Wall, and rejoiced when it was demolished.

    So they are fighting on the border with Russian aircraft. Strengthen. But the AWACS were given to help. And NATO is scurrying about Russian aggression in Syria. Little, come out?

    Now Americans will throw concrete on the fence and these 25 thousand patrolmen will guard the fence. But Erdogan jumps: Americans will put him a piston. It hurt he became quick. Fear is lost.

    About a month ago, a message passed that Assad decided to close the border with Turkey. Our instructors trained the personnel of the Syrian border guards and imported the appropriate equipment. It doesn’t work out differently - the border should be closed on both sides. Apparently now this process is moving to the final stage, so the Turks and Americans revived. Indeed, before that, for almost 4 years, they had been pulling together oil from the Syrian fields, and did not even stutter about closing the border.
