Statement on Turkish Bombardment in Northern Syria


Europe's East
Med & South

Concerning the invasion of northern Iraq by Turkish troops, Gregor Gysi, President of the European Left, declares:


The attack on Kurdish areas in Syria announced for days by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, began with the bombardment of Afrîn in northern Syria.

Erdogan's dangerous and contrary to the international law play on fire will destabilize the entire region again. Not only the Turkish-American relationship but also the relationship with Russia will be burdened.

The actions of the Turkish government clearly show a de-democratization of Turkey, which began with the suppression of oppositional structures and resulted in the use of military force contrary to international law.

It is high time that the European Union an NATO draw consequences.
