afrin syria
Turkey had given no guarantee to Russia or any other country that military operation will be limited to Syria's Afrin, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said Monday.


Nobody has the right to impose limits on Turkey's operation against the U.S.-backed Kurdish militia the People's Protection Units (YPG), Bozdag told reporters following a cabinet meeting.

Meanwhile, a Foreign Ministry official also rejected Russian media reports that the Turkish military operation along the Syrian border will be limited to Afrin.

Turkey has made no such commitment to Russia, the official was quoted by state-run Anadolu Agency as saying.
