The Syriac Union Party has issued a statement denouncing Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s threats for north Syria.
“Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan continues with his threats to invade and occupy more territories in north Syria alleging that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are posing threats to Turkey’s borders, though the aim of SDF is only and has always been fighting extremist terrorist armed groups in Syria, and act for self-defense. The SDF has never posed any threat or caused any harm to neighboring countries.
Turkey’s aggression increased at the time the SDF and the US-led Global Coalition are actively clearing and securing the final pocket controlled by the terrorist organisation ISIS in the east of the Euphrates; The escalation in such critical time poses serious threats to the peace and stability of north and east Syria, and undermines the fight against Daesh.
Syriac Union Party rejects and strongly condemns the remarks made by the Turkish president, whose aim is occupying more territories in Syria and enabling terrorist groups such as the ones currently controlling and committing awful crimes and violations against the local population in al Bab, Jarablus, Azaz, and Afrin.
We call on our Syrian people has to strongly stand together against this aggression that aims at occupying our homeland.
We call on the United Nations to carry out its responsibility of protecting the east of the Euphrates from any military invasion which will lead to a catastrophic situation, also, facilitating the peace process in Syria, and put an end to the war and foreign invasions.”
