Turkish armed forces to leave Syria in case of political settlement of crisis

The Turkish army will leave Syrian territory in case of a political settlement of the conflict in the country, Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Friday during his visit to Norway.

"If a political settlement in Syria is found, our army will leave it. However, now the [President Bashar al-Assad’s] regime does not believe in a political settlement," the NTV channel quoted the minister as saying.

In early July the Turkish administration stated its plans to hold a military operation in northern Syria. Ankara considers the Kurdish armed groups located there a threat to national security, TASS reports.

In 2017, the northern de-escalation zone was created in the Idlib Governorate and the bordering areas of Aleppo, Latakia and Hama. There are now 12 Turkish observation posts on its territory.
