Foreign Ministry: Syria categorically rejects US, Turkish occupations’ agreement on so-called “safe zone”

Syria expressed categorical rejection of the agreement which was announced by the US and Turkish occupations on establishing the so-called “safe zone”, affirming that it constitutes a flagrant aggression against Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry told that “Syria expresses categorical rejection of the agreement announced by the US and Turkish occupations on establishing the so-called (safe zone) which constitutes a blatant aggression against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic and a flagrant violation of the principles of the international law and the UN Charter.”

“This agreement has very clearly exposed the US-Turkish partnership in the aggression against Syria which serves the interest of the Israeli occupation entity and the Turkish expansionist ambitions and it unequivocally exposed the misleading and evasiveness which govern the policies of the Turkish regime,” the source added.

The source continued that some of the Syrian sides of the Kurdish citizens who have been misled and accepted to be a tool and a pretext for this US-Turkish hostile project, bear the historical responsibility for that emerging situation, and it is time to reconsider their calculations and to stand by the side of all the Syrians and the Syrian Arab Army in defending the sovereignty of the Syrian Arab Republic and its territorial integrity.

The source affirmed that the Syrian people and their heroic army who have sacrificed for defending Syria in the face of the Takfiri terrorist groups and their backers, are more determined to sacrifice in everything to preserve the safety and territorial integrity of their homeland.

“Syria calls on the Arab people to be aware of the dangers of the expansionist ambitions of the Turkish regime which is spreading the killing and chaos in different parts of the Arab world from Syria to Libya and the Sudan and it will not stop till it will satisfy its illusions on reviving the Ottoman Sultanate,” the source said.

The source concluded by saying that “Syria calls on the international community and the UN to condemn the US-Turkish flagrant aggression which constitutes a dangerous escalation and poses a threat to peace and security in the region and the world and hinders all positive efforts for finding a solution to the crisis in Syria,” the source added.
