Russia concerned by movement of Turkish troops inside Syria

Moscow is worried by the movement of Turkish troops inside Syrian territory, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday. It said these actions are being conducted without coordination with the legitimate Syrian authorities and without approval on the part of the UN Security Council.

This puts in question the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic,” according to the statement. “With account for that, the position of Damascus appears fair and justified from the international-legal viewpoint,” the ministry added.

Turkey’s actions may additionally complicate the already difficult military-political situation in Syria and negatively affect the international efforts to develop a platform of settlement, the ministry said. It called on Ankara to “place these tasks higher than the immediate military tactical goals,” TASS reports.
