Bozdag:Turkey does not stand by any country on Syria
Turkey does not stand with or against any country on Syria and its policy in the region is different from that of Iran, Russia and the United States, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said.
The comments by Bozdag were in response to a reporter’s question about an earlier remark from French President Emmanuel Macron, who said Turkey’s support of missile strikes against Syria showed it had “separated” from Russia.
"Turkey’s Syria policy isn’t to stand with or against any country. There is no change to the policy Turkey has been carrying out," Reuters cited Bozdag as saying.
"We do not have a united policy with the United States on the YPG issue, and Turkey’s stance has not changed. We are also against the unconditional support for the (Syrian) regime and we are at odds with Iran and Russia on this," he added.
In addition, Bozdag said Turkey did not hesitate to work together with any country who defended “correct principles” on Syria.
