Turkey is not obliged to ask permission to start an operation in Syria

Turkey is not obliged to ask other countries for permission to have a new military operation in Syria. This was stated by the official representative of the Turkish President Ibrahim Kalin.

According to him, plans to start the operation are dictated by the interests of the country’s national security.

“In 2019, we signed two agreements with the United States and the Russian Federation that relate to the eastern regions of the Euphrates, but the threat of terrorism emanating from them has not completely disappeared,” said Kalyn

He added that Turkey will take the necessary measures to ensure the security of its borders, as well as conduct military operations. The official representative of the Turkish leader emphasized that Ankara has a legitimate right to independently choose ways to resolve conflicts.

Earlier, Russian businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin said that Turkey has every right to protect borders and national interests. He approved the country’s plans to conduct a military operation in Syria.
