Turkey rejects statement by Assad regime targeting its territorial integrity
Foreign Ministry spokesman slams Assad regime parliament's 'unlawful' statement targeting Turkey's territorial integrity
Turkey on Thursday strongly rejected a statement by the so-called parliament of the Syrian regime, targeting the country's territorial integrity.
"We strongly reject the impertinent and unlawful statement targeting the territorial integrity of our country, which has been made by the regime’s so-called People's Assembly which is devoid of democratic legitimacy and under no circumstances represents the Syrian people," Tanju Bilgic, the spokesman for the Turkish Foreign Ministry, said in a statement.
Bilgic underlined that such statements were also signs of "delusional impasse" on the part of the Bashar al Assad regime, which has been oppressing its own people for years and is "responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands innocent people and displacement of millions from their lands and homes."
"Turkey, as in the past, today and also in the future, has perseverance and determination to respond to contemptible aspirations against its homeland and any threats to its national interests," he added.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
