Turkey: US Uses Double Standards, Interpreting UNSC Syria Resolution

US Uses Double Standards
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said Thursday that the United States applies double standards suggesting Turkey to read the UN Security Council resolution on the Syrian truce in the light of Ankara’s operation in Afrin, it is Washington that should read the document.

“We have read [the UN Security Council resolution], it is them [the United States] who should read it. Afrin is not mentioned there. This decision of the UN Security Council does not exclude the fight against terrorists, and Turkey is fighting against them and contributing to peace there. Terrorists are all the same, you cannot divide them into bad and good ones. The United States behaves illogically guided by double standards, this cannot be accepted. Not a single civilian was injured during the Olive Branch operation,” Bozdag told reporters, RIA Novosti reported.

On Tuesday, US State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert 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.

Commenting on the accusations, the Turkish Foreign Ministry's Spokesman, Hami Aksoy, said such US statements undermined the essence of the resolution.
