Syrian ceasefire must apply to Afrin: Turkey blasts France, US over Syria ceasefire comments

Turkey blasts France, US over Syria ceasefire
Turkey on Wednesday sharply criticised France and the United States for arguing a ceasefire in Syria should apply to its military operation against Kurdish militia, as new tensions mounted between Ankara and its NATO allies.


The United Nations Security Council, crucially including regime ally Russia, has agreed a 30-day nationwide ceasefire in Syria although this has yet to be implemented or end the violence in rebel-held Eastern Ghouta.

  1. The US State Department's recent statement accusing Turkey of violating the UNSC resolution on the Syrian truce by continuing its operation in Afrin undermines the essence of this resolution, the Turkish Foreign Ministry's spokesman Hami Aksoy said on Wednesday.
    Reacting to Tuesday's statement of US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert, who advised Ankara to "go back and read this resolution," when asked whether she would agree that Turkey was violating Syrian ceasefire by its actions in Afrin.

    "The statement of the US State Department spokesperson that Turkey needs to 'read carefully' the UNSC resolution is unfounded and denotes that she [Nauert] did not understand how this decision should be applied, or she wants to distort it," Aksoy said in a statement.

    The spokesman stressed that Washington should focus on efforts to stop violence in Syria that affected civilians, rather than making such statements.

    1. Este miércoles, Ankara ha aseverado que EE.UU. malinterpretó el alcance de la reciente resolución de la ONU sobre alto el fuego en Siria, aprobada por unanimidad en el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU el 24 de febrero, y ha acusado a Francia de dar "información falsa" al respecto...

      Según la parte turca, la resolución de la ONU, que establece 30 días de cese de hostilidades en Siria, no se aplica a su operación militar 'Rama de Olivo', que se puso en marcha hace 5 semanas en la región siria de Afrín contra la milicia kurda YPG, a la que Turquía considera un grupo terrorista.

      "EE.UU. no entiende la resolución, nosotros sí"

      El vocero del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores de Turquía, Hami Aksoy, en un discurso ha sostenido que la sugerencia del Departamento de Estado de EE.UU. de que Ankara "vuelva a leer" la resolución de cese al fuego carece de fundamento y demuestra que [Washington] no es capaz de entender el enfoque de la resolución, o que quiere distorsionarla".

      En opinión del portavoz turco, recogida por Reuters, la resolución de la ONU no menciona específicamente a Afrín, mientras que la operación de Turquía es "una lucha que se lleva a cabo contra las organizaciones terroristas que atacan la seguridad nacional de Turquía y la unidad de Siria".
