Assad comments on Erdogan's actions in Syria

Syrian leader Bashar Assad described Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's actions in Syria as illegal.

According to Assad, Erdogan has his own agenda, and there are two points, first, his own goals related to the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as “the tasks he faces as a U.S. puppet,” RT reported.

The Syrian president recalled that Erdogan had been speaking about his intention to launch an invasion of northern Syria and cleanse the area of “terrorists,” by which he meant the formations associated with the military units of the Kurdish Democratic Union party.

He said the military units are also to blame, but Erdogan was the one to conduct an invasion.
