Turkey to continue anti-terror fight ‘uninterruptedly’
Turkey’s National Security Council on Wednesday discussed the latest developments in Syria and fight against terrorism.
In a statement after a five-hour meeting in the capital Ankara, the National Security Council said that Turkey will maintain its stance on preserving current status in Syria’s Idlib, implementation of Manbij roadmap and deals east of the Euphrates River, Anadoly agency reports.
Last week, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey was ready to take over the security in Syria's Manbij without delay during a phone conversation with his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump.
A statement from the Turkish presidency said Erdogan and Trump agreed to take joint measures to clear Daesh's remnants in Syria and prevent the group's resurgence.
The National Security Council renewed call for ending foreign support to terrorist groups and said the fight against all terror outfits will continue “uninterruptedly”.
The council emphasized on securing country's southern borders as part of counter-terrorism efforts.
It also stressed measures against terrorist organizations that are disturbing the country's peace.
The council said it is “unacceptable” that some countries are refraining from extraditing terror group members.
