Qa-27, 19 April 2019, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding French President Macron’s Reception Of A Delegation Of The So-called “syrian Democratic Forces”

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 19.04.2019

We condemn French President Emmanuel Macron’s reception of a delegation of the so-called “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) which is dominated by PYD/YPG, the Syrian extension of the terrorist organization PKK. This attempt that aims to provide pseudo legitimacy to the extensions of the terrorist organization is an utterly wrong step which does not comply with the spirit of alliance.

We once again remind the importance of not allowing the promotion of agendas targeting Syria’s political unity and territorial integrity, and that Turkey will not refrain from taking steps it finds necessary to ensure its national security.
