Erdogan: Turkey ready to stage another operation in Syria
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey is determined to clear territories east of the Euphrates of terrorists.
"Our agenda includes territories located east of the Euphrates, a home to nests of terrorist. And we are determined to exterminate them," the Turkish leader stressed during his speech in Konya broadcast by NTV.
Turkey’s government has been mulling plans of another military operation in neighboring Syria for a year. Ankara wants to set up a security zone there for returning Syrian refugees. It also wants to have a buffer zone along its border. Ankara is currently in talks with Washington on that matter, TASS recalls.
