Erdogan: striking Idlib with phosphorus missiles unforgivable crime

ISTANBUL, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday said that the Syrian regime’s targeting of civilians in Idlib with phosphorus missiles is a crime that could not be forgiven.

In a press statement before leaving Tajikistan’s capital Dusanbe, Erdogan said, “Turkey will not remain silent if the Syrian regime continues to attack observation points in Idlib,” before leaving to attend the 5th Summit of Heads of State of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA).

He added on the developments of the eastern Mediterranean that Turkey has the right to keep its troops in Northern Cyprus and deploy others there as much as needed without permission from anyone.

On Manbij in Syria, Erdogan said, “Our partners, the US, did not keep its promise on Manbij … However it doesn’t mean that we given up on the Manbij issue, we keep all our plans and we will continue to do so,” according to Anadolu News Agency.
