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

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.

    Sollten Assads Truppen tatsächlich die YPG unterstützen, werde man auch diese bekämpfen, sagte Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu.

  2. Turkey's foreign minister Monday warned against any intervention by Syrian pro-government forces alongside Kurdish militias in northern Syria, saying it would not prevent Ankara from continuing its month-old offensive.

    Mevlut Cavusoglu was reacting to a report from Syrian state news agency SANA saying pro-government forces were expected in the Afrin region to counter the Turkish offensive against the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) militia.

  3. Le ministre turc des Affaires étrangères, Mevlut Cavusoglu, cité par la chaîne de télévision turque NTV, a menacé l'armée syrienne d'entreprendre des actions militaires, si elle soutient les Kurdes à Afrine.
    Mevlut Cavusoglu, ministre turc des Affaires étrangères, a commenté la récente déclaration faite par les forces pro-gouvernementales syriennes d'entrer dans le canton d'Afrine pour soutenir les Kurdes face à l'offensive des troupes turques «d'ici quelques heures».

    «S'ils entrent pour le vider [le canton d'Afrine, ndlr] des YPG [Unités de protection du peuple, ndlr], il n'y a aucun problème. S'ils entrent pour protéger des YPG, rien n'arrêtera ni la Turquie, ni les soldats turcs», a fait savoir le chef de la Diplomatie turque lors de sa visite en Jordanie, cité par la chaîne de télévision turque NTV.
