US forbids Turkey to invade Syria

20.02.2016
 

Turkey rejected a ground operation in Syria, according to the Permanent Representative of Turkey in the United Nations Halit Çevik. According to him, ''Turkey will not be going into Syria with the boots on the ground if it is not a collective action, either by the Security Council resolution or by the international coalition''. Why did Turks change their mind?

Sergey Babkin, leading research fellow at the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences:

''It can be explained quite easily, taking into account that the Kurds, which are fighting currently in the north of Syria against the Islamic State as well as other groups, are supported by both Russia and the US. Turkey has no reasons to oppose the Americans, especially since Washington has already demanded Ankara to stop artillery shelling of the Kurdish positions that they carry out from the territory of Turkey.''
