U.S. admits Turkey owed explanation over Syria force

U.S. admits Turkey owed explanation over Syria force

The state news agency Sana, quoted Ayman Sousan, assistant foreign and expatriates minister, as saying that a USA presence on Syrian soil represented "utter aggression and a blatant violation of the global law".

Beyond its role in stabilization, other reasons for the continued USA engagement are that ungoverned spaces in Syria are breeding grounds for Islamic State and other terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda, which he said is still "a grave threat" that is looking to "reconstitute in new and powerful ways".

Yildirim says: "The U.S. must eliminate the confusion and change its stance in favor of peace and improving relations with Turkey".

"As we have seen from Iran's proxy wars and public announcements, Iran seeks dominance in the Middle East and the destruction of our ally Israel", he said.

"It aims at significantly expanding the diplomatic actions on the ongoing military successes", Tillerson said.

Russia, Syrian government's main global ally, also expressed fears that the U.S.is "pursuing a policy to cut Syria into several pieces".

"We are not creating a border security force at all", he said, adding that he had spoken to US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to confirm this. And Republicans and Democrats in the US have grown anxious that both of Assad's allies are now entrenched in the country, with Iran in particular posing an immediate threat to neighboring Israel. Tillerson said he wants more cooperation with pro-Assad Russian forces in Syria to avoid violence in "de-escalation zones". "Instead, we will encourage worldwide assistance to rebuild areas the global coalition and its local partners have liberated from Islamic State", he said.

Tillerson said Washington was aware of Turkey's humanitarian efforts in Syria, adding that the U.S. will need Turkey's help to work on the currently-war-torn country's future.

"We can not allow history to repeat itself in Syria", he said, referring to what he described as mistakes made by the Obama administration in withdrawing USA troops prematurely from Iraq and failing to stabilize Libya after North Atlantic Treaty Organisation airstrikes that led to the ousting of the late President Moammar Gadhafi.

Assad responded by vowing to crush the new force and drive USA troops from Syria. United Nations special envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura announced Wednesday that the U.N. would host the Syrian government and opposition for peace talks in Vienna on January 25 and 26. But he also urged "patience" for Assad's departure while calling for UN-supervised elections. Ties between the two countries have been strained over USA support for the Syrian Democratic forces, the mainly Kurdish-led militias fighting Islamic State in northern Syria with the help of US forces.

The U.S.'s ultimate objectives in Syria include ensuring ISIS is fully defeated, "post-Assad leadership" and preventing Iran from bolstering its position. Russian Federation called the plans a plot to dismember Syria and place part of it under US control, and Turkey described the force as a "terror army".
