AA photoTurkey’s government will not send the country on an unpredictable adventure amid the continued shelling of Democratic Union Party (PYD) positions in northern Syria, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmuş said Feb. 16.
“No one should doubt that we are taking all measures that will protect all the national interests of Turkey and making all kinds of preparations. In the end, we will not agree to send Turkey on any unpredictable adventure,” Kurtulmuş said at a press conference after a cabinet meeting on Feb. 16.
Kurtulmuş said the main topic that should be brought to the attention of the U.N. Security Council was the Feb. 15 attacks targeting hospitals and civilian regions in Azez, urging the U.N. to raise its voice against attacks by Russian warplanes.
The Deputy Prime Minister also criticized the United States and Russia over recent developments in the region, calling on the countries to declare no-fly zone in Syria at the U.N. Security Council if they are sincere about peace.
