Syria condemns Turkish intervention in Iraq

Damascus, SANA – Foreign and Expatriates Ministry strongly condemned Turkey’s intervention into Iraqi territory.

This “flagrant” act of intervention is but a part of the subversive role which the Turkish government under the Justice and Development Party has been practicing against Syria and Iraq, the Ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

The Turkish government, it added, has repeatedly transgressed the Syrian sovereignty and continues providing support to the terrorist organizations and facilitating their crimes.

The Turkish forces’ entry into Iraqi territory without the Iraqi government’s approval is a “brazen” violation of Iraq’ sovereignty, the statement went on saying, adding that this act flagrantly contravenes the UN Charter and increases
tensions in the region.

The Ministry’s statement expressed Syria’s full solidarity with the government and people of Iraq against this “act of aggression”, demanding the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of the Turkish forces from Iraq and respect of Iraq’s sovereignty and territorial integrity against interference.
