EU calls on 'Sometimes NATO Ally' Turkey to halt military action in Syria.(HD).
European Union officials have called on Turkey to halt its military action in Syria after Turkish forces shelled positions held by the Democratic Union Party (PYD) over the weekend.
Responding to a question on the announcement made by Turkey and Saudi Arabia that they could intervene in Syria, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Feb. 15 that Ankara’s actions violated the decision reached on Feb. 12 in Munich to reach a “cessation of hostilities.”
“Only a few days ago, all of us, including Turkey … decided on steps to de-escalate and have a cessation of hostilities,” Mogherini said Feb. 15 in Brussels.
“Having trends on the ground that go in the opposite direction obviously is not what we expect,” Mogherini said.
Meanwhile, Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders, whose country holds the EU’s rotating presidency, said “we have the plan for a cessation of hostilities and I think everybody has to abide by that,” the Associated Press reported. Hmmm.....The truth is the MB Club just loves to protect terrorists and kill Kurds.
