Erdogan says Turkey anxious about 'wrestling' of world powers over Syria

Andrew Malcolm: While we were sleeping, Russia, Iran and Turkey made an ominous deal

Turkey's president is set to speak with his Russian counterpart regarding the conflict in Syria.

"Our relations with Russia, Iran and China are complementary to our relations with the West, not an alternative", he asserted.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday criticized Russia's stance on the future of Syria's Afrin region, saying that Ankara itself would decide the details of returning the area to the Syrian people. "So, serious clashes may start", Canikli added, urging the U.S., Russian, and Syrian governments to "act with restraint".

The United States and its allies have blamed the Syrian government for the attack which reportedly killed dozens, although Damascus vehemently rejects the allegations and insists they are part of a wider effort to undermine the gains made by the pro-government forces against militants in Eastern Ghouta.

The Turkish defense minister's stark warning comes on the heels of several early morning tweets by Trump that intensified concerns that the U.S.is preparing to launch a military attack on Syria, risking a direct confrontation with Russian forces stationed in the country.

The alleged chemical attack in rebel-held Douma near Damascus on April 7 sparked worldwide outrage and warnings of possible military action.

The accused was held by the Central Bureau of Investigation ( CBI ) for scrutinising objective on early Friday morning. Subsequently, the victim's father was booked by the police under the Arms Act on April 3 and put in jail on April 5.

"The United States submitted the draft resolution but it was vetoed".

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply that the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.

"We are extremely anxious that some countries confident of their military power are turning Syria into a scene for arm wrestling", Erdogan said Thursday.

"Those who support the regime of murderer Assad are making a mistake".

Airstrikes on PKK targets in northern Iraq, where the terror group has its main base in the Mount Qandil region, near the Iranian border, have been carried out regularly since July 2015, when the PKK resumed its armed terror campaign.
