Ankara has protested in connection with accusations from Washington in the shelling of Turkish artillery Kurdish formations in Syria

40
On the eve of the official representative of the US State Department on behalf of the department called on Turkey to stop shelling the Syrian territory. The US’s concern was caused by the fact that Turkish artillery strikes at the positions of the Kurdish militia, which is supported by the Americans. It should be recalled that on the eve of the Kurdish formations liberated from the militants the key settlement Tel-Rifaat, located on an important road 20 km from the Turkish border. The road connects Turkey with the province of Aleppo. The Kurds began a storming of Tel Rifaat from the north and drove out the militants a few hours after the start of the fighting.


Called Turkey to stop the shelling and Vice President Joe Biden. Statements by representatives of the American authorities have caused Ankara’s negative reaction. Thus, the press secretary of the Turkish Foreign Ministry said that the United States "are trying to put Turkey in a row with a terrorist organization."
RIA News cites official Ankara’s statement:
We perceived with bewilderment the attempts of the United States to put Turkey on a par with a terrorist organization. The actions of the Turkish side are aimed at combating terrorism. Turkey strongly condemns the statements of Kirby, our strong protest brought to the attention of the US authorities.


Ankara has protested in connection with accusations from Washington in the shelling of Turkish artillery Kurdish formations in Syria


A spokesman for the Turkish Foreign Ministry said that Kurdish forces in northern Syria "are attacking moderate opposition units." At the same time, Turkey stubbornly does not want to tell who is in this “moderate opposition”, if the patriotic militia of Syria is not part of it, and Kurdish formations are not included ... The answer to this question is quite simple: under Ankara continues to understand the “moderate opposition” groups associated with Dzhebhat al-Nusra and ISIS, sponsored by Turkey itself.

          The USA is forced to quietly begin to "merge" Turkey, which is potentially militarily unsuccessful and bankrupt economically and politically, and look for other partners in the BV.

              The USA burns the Middle East. They have no allies in a sense that is understandable to us; they have used ones. And the Kurds and Turks used them and at the same time both of them have their own interests. And now, the Turks should become aggressors, who will then be condemned. At the same time, the US hopes to stand above the battle, and not participate in it, because it is more profitable.
              Well, how small you are.
              Not a black cat, nausea and potential ill-being. They have a plan and they are implementing it.
              In the first half of the 20th century they didn’t do that. I will hint: the main cars in the Red Army and the Wehrmacht were cars of American design. But this is a big separate topic.

      The key moment of the Russian special operation is the struggle for Aleppo. Taking this strategic milestone will show the entire international community that the actions of the Russian Aerospace Forces make sense. The return of perhaps one of the largest cities in Syria will seriously affect the entire outcome of the Syrian conflict. However, at this moment, Turkey’s invasion of Syria becomes inevitable. And this is fraught with unforeseen consequences. Given the endless stream of refugees to the Syrian-Turkish border, as well as the advance of the Kurdish militia and the Syrian government forces to the north of the country, at some point it will deprive Ankara of control over the border, which will lead to the creation of Kurdish autonomy. That’s what Erdogan is afraid of. There is a serious threat of the Russo-Turkish conflict.
      One way or another, the capture of Aleppo is the main goal of Russia. This will be not only a symbol of Moscow’s success in the Middle East, but also another goal against the United States and its allies. The liberated territories will not go over to moderate opposition, but will stand under the leadership of Bashar al-Assad, and this radically changes the matter.

      Most likely, the US needs to make another "Syria" out of Turkey, only by the hands of Russia - with all the ensuing consequences for the EU and the weakening of China's positions in the Middle East

        These statements by the United States are most reminiscent of the older brother's grumbling at the younger, the standard continuity of policy in the United States. "Even though he is ... his son (Erdogan), but our son ... is our son." and handed a note of protest. And so it looks like a slight curtsy to the Kurds, a small handout.

      So why shouldn't you worry, the Turks in the brazen office are firing and discrediting the "correct" side of humanity to the fullest, giving an informational reason for ours to poke the coalition into their own house with their noses.

    "Expressing concern" will not work on the Turks. At this moment they can only be suspended by serious financial or, better, military measures.
    I understand that this is unacceptable, but if the US troops entered Syria were under fire, the situation would probably develop in a completely different way ...

    by “moderate opposition” Ankara continues to understand the detachments associated with the Jebhat al-Nusra and ISIS, sponsored including by Turkey itself

    "The actions of the Turkish side are aimed at combating terrorism" - Everything that is directed against the Kurds for the Turks will be moderate. First of all, they care only about their interests, hence the contradictions with all parties.

    It’s just a slap from the United States to the flamboyant schoolboy Erdogan, for Turkey, as a lever of influence on Russia, how many times the Anglo-Saxons forced the Turks to fight Russia, you can’t count. If Russia quickly and strongly makes the Turks, you can always say they ran into it, or the turnover taking advantage of Turkey’s membership in NATO, to fight Russia with the wrong hands, supplying arms and mercenaries from around the world, as in Afghanistan.
