Syria, Erdogan assaults again Macron: support for the Kurds compromises us

Turkey gruffly censured the gathering of French President Emmanuel Macron for certain individuals from the Syrian Democratic Council, the agent body of the Kurdish-Syrian organization of the Pyd, considered “psychological militant” by Ankara however upheld by the US and Western nations in the battle against ‘Isis and the adjustment of the area. The allegation is contained in a note from the Ankara Foreign Ministry. The Paris relationship with the Syrian Kurds “compromises Turkey’s public safety and endeavors to ensure Syria’s political solidarity and regional respectability.”

Effectively before, Sultan Erdogan had condemned Macron for the French situation in Syria. Furthermore, more accurately, the French government’s help for Kurdish contenders battling with the Turkish armed force. In 2018, in Paris, French President Emmanuel Macron got a designation of agents of the Forces of Rojava, Western Kurdistan. Furthermore, quickly, the voice of the Turkish head of state Recep Tayyip Erdogan made itself understood. “I’m incredibly upset by France’s off-base way to deal with this issue,” the head of Ankara roared in a discourse given in the Turkish money to MPs from his moderate and Islamist party. “Why should you discuss intercession among Turkey and a psychological militant association? We needn’t bother with a middle person. Since when does Turkey find a spot at a table with a fear-based oppressor association? France is going a long way past limits “. Erdogan added, fail to discuss his help for Syrian jihadists.

At the Elysée, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) agents had discussed the current hostile by the Turkish Armed Forces in Syria, called ‘Peace offering,’ and about the battling in Afrin and the accompanying objective areas of Erdogan’s military. Paris had requested that Ankara set up a discourse with the civilian armies, principally comprised of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), considered by the Turkish specialists to be a Syrian part of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) established in 1984 by Abdullah Ocalan, and thusly viewed as fear-based oppressor associations.

The PKK is enrolled as such by both the European Union and the United States. Then again, the West’s way to deal with Kurdish units is unique. Some of them occupied with the contention in Syria. Washington, for instance, considers both the YPG and the Pyd (Democratic Union Party) as entire gatherings and partners in the battle against the jihadists of the so-called Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, as occurred in 2015 in the freedom of the city of Kobane. Ankara, nonetheless, doesn’t redirect from its feelings. “You can find a spot at the table with a fear-based oppressor association — added Erdogan alluding to France — , yet Turkey is battling it as it did in Afrin.”

The king has reliably denied any arrangement speculation: “We reject any work to advance exchange, contacts, or intervention among Turkey and these psychological oppressor gatherings. The nations we see as partners and companions should show a reasonable situation against various types. That is a result of psychological warfare and not to make strides that legitimize fear-monger gatherings. Turkey’s methodology towards the PKK/Pyd/Ypg is clear: we reject inane techniques like exchange, contacts or interventions with them “.

Macron then, at that point appeared to offer himself as an arbiter, asking the launch of a discussion between the Syrian Democratic Forces and Ankara with the help of France and the global-local area. A few bits of hearsay even discussed the conceivable sending of French warriors to help the Kurds in Syria, a theory authoritatively dismissed by the Elysée yet could be precise today.
