Turkey - SMART

On Tuesday, the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu called on the Russian and Syrian government forces to stop the military campaign on the Idlib governorate, Northern Syria. Çavuşoğlu called for the elimination of terrorist groups in the governorate.

"Everyone is interested in the situation in Idlib," Çavuşoğlu stated in a press conference in the Romanian capital of Bucharest. Çavuşoğlu expressed Ankara's readiness to work with Russia, Iran, the United States, France, and the United Kingdom, as well as "all partners" in Syria.

Çavuşoğlu added, "We did our best in the Astana and Sochi talks and met to prevent the massacre in Idlib, but the Syrian government and Russia continue their military attacks." Çavuşoğlu noted that they had not made progress on a political solution, and the regime and its allies believe in a military solution.

The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated, "If the international community, including Europe and the US, fail to take action now, not only innocent Syrians but the entire world stands to pay the price," He added, "We can’t leave Syrians in Idlib to Assad's mercy; the world must stop him, all members of the international community must understand their responsibilities as the assault on Idlib looms."

Turkish officials delivered statements on the Russian and Syrian government forces' potential attack on the Idlib governorate. Erdogan stressed that they would not stand by about killing thousands of civilians for the sake of Assad. The Turkish Defense Ministry seeks to stop aerial and ground attacks on Idlib.

The Syrian government forces and Russia continue to bomb the Idlib governorate using different kinds of the arsenal, killing and injuring dozens of civilians. The bombings also destroyed a Civil Defense headquarters and displaced residents.
