Turkish trans-border strikes on Syria, They (Turkey) should be fully aware of their responsibility — Ryabkov.
Turkish trans-border strikes on Syria, They (Turkey) should be fully aware of their responsibility — Ryabkov. (Tass).
Turkey’s activity on the border with Syria can be a delayed-action mine under the ceasefire agreements, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Monday.
"The Turkish colleagues have not abandoned the idea of trans-border strikes, an idea to form certain zones on the Syrian territory along the Turkish border," he said, noting that it is "a very dangerous situation from the point of view of how Ankara can behave".
According to Ryabkov, the use of force in Syria by outside players, particularly Turkey, could undermine the political settlement in this country.
"We cannot but be concerned about military preparations, intensifying activity along the perimeter of the Syrian border. If the governments of the countries that are engaged in these activities, have plans to use force to achieve some goals, this would be a fatal blow to everything that has been achieved to date," he said.
"These governments, including Turkey, should be fully aware of their responsibility," Ryabkov said. Hmmm......As long as Erdogan and his minions are running Turkey there will be no peace in the Middle East.
