Turkey - SMART

On Tuesday, Ibrahim Kalin, the Turkish Presidential spokesperson, stated that the Russian and Syrian government forces' potential attack on the Idlib governorate in Northern Syria could hinder a political solution in Syria.

Kalin held a press conference at the presidential complex in Ankara, saying that European, regional countries, and the United States must cooperate to stop the attack on Idlib. Kalin added that he expects all sides to adopt future positions that contribute to reaching a political solition, according to the Turkish news agency Anadolu.

Kalin noted that the Turkish efforts are not enough on their own to prevent an attack in Idlib, adding that he believes the attack could create a serious trust crisis. Kalin demanded the international community to assume responsibility for what is happening in Idlib.

Kalin added that attacking Idlib will cause thousands of civilians to flee to Turkey, which will lead to further complications in Turkey, the European Union, and other countries.

Kalin considers the Western countries' threats to intervene if the Syrian government uses chemical weapons in Idlib as insufficient and inconsistent, saying that hundreds of thousands of civilians have been killed by conventinal weapons.

Kalin's statements coincided with a United Nations Security Council emergency session. During the session, the US ambassador said that Russia and Iran were not serious about reaching a political solution in Syria. The Security Council agreed on the need to prevent attacks on Idlib.

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