According to the Turkish Foreign Minister, Ankara will continue to cooperate with Russia in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group on the territory of Syria.
Turkey is going to continue its cooperating with Russia in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on December 1, after negotiations with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
“We have to work and we carry out general work in the fight against international terrorism, it is one of the most important spheres of our activity. The PKK [the Kurdistan Workers’ Party], Daish [IS] and other terrorist organizations pose a threat not only for our region but for the whole world. In this context, we will continue to cooperate,” Cavusoglu said
So, it seems that Turkey has once again changed its opinion on Syria: just on Tuesday Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the main goal of the Turkish military operation in Syria is “to end the rule of the tyrant al-Assad,” and today the Turkish government is again ready to fight against the IS in the country. This demonstrates a complicated military-political situation, in which the Republic of Turkey actually is.
