Turkey ‘will not stop if pro-regime forces enter Afrin to protect YPG’: Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu

Turkey ‘will not stop if pro-regime forces enter Afrin to protect YPG’
If pro-regime [Syrian] forces enter the northern Syrian town of Afrin, where Turkey is carrying out a military operation, with a motive to help Turkey’s target – People’s Protection Units (YPG)—Turkish forces will respond, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said on Feb. 19.


“There is no problem if Syrian forces enter Afrin to get rid of the YPG or the PKK [Kurdistan Workers’ Party]. But if they enter Afrin to protect the YPG, then no one can stop Turkish forces,” Çavuşoğlu said at a joint press conference in Jordan.

Syrian state television channel al-Ikhbariya TV said on Feb. 19 that pro-Syrian government forces would soon enter Afrin.

    1. Turkey managed to thwart a possible deployment of Syrian government forces into the northwestern Afrin region, President Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday, a day after he spoke to his Russian and Iranian counterparts.

      Turkey Monday had warned it would confront Syrian government forces if they entered Afrin to help the Kurdish YPG militia repel a Turkish offensive in the region, after reports of a deal between the YPG and Damascus government Sunday.

      Erdogan made the comments to reporters following a speech in parliament in Ankara.
