Erdogan calls on the Kurds to stay 30 km from the Turkish border

At the Tehran summit, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on the Kurdish groups to withdraw 30 km from the Turkish border into the Syrian depth.

“The time has come when these lands must be cleansed of the threats of separatists and terrorists,” Erdogan said.

Before the start of the summit, Erdogan spoke of his intention to carry out a military operation against the Kurds.

Erdogan said during the summit that his country could not tolerate the presence of Kurdish groups on the Syrian-Turkish border.

He added: “These terrorist organizations continue to pursue their separatist policy on the territories of Syria and Türkiye.

Türkiye cannot remain aloof from its activities, and cannot help noticing the dangerous subversive separatist activities that it is carrying out on our borders”.

The Turkish president stressed that “Syria’s territorial integrity and security is our priority, and I am sure that my Iranian and Russian colleagues support me in this desire”.
