Erdogan: we will not tolerate forming 'terrorist state' beyond our borders
Ankara will not allow forming a 'terrorist state' of Syrian Kurds with the help of the US beyond its borders, Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told a parliamentary group meeting of his ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party.
Erdogan said that the U.S. has "a plan against Turkey." "We see that a terror corridor has been formed in northern Syria from east to west," he added.
"We will not watch the intent to forming a terrorist state beyond our borders with our hands and feet tied by those who want to crucify us in the U.S. with allegations of sanctions violations," Anadolu Agency cited President Erdogan as saying.
Erdogan explained that Turkey has always worked carefully not to harm friendly powers in Syria. "But we will destroy all extensions of the terrorist organization in Syria one day or another, but soon," he stressed.
