Turkish President on Monday hinted at a possible new cross-border operation to clear the PKK organization from its border with Syria.
“We will continue our fight against terrorism. Our decision to establish a 30-kilometer-deep (18.6-mile) secure line along our southern border is permanent,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in an address to Turkish diplomats attending the 13th Ambassadors Conference in the capital Ankara.
“I hope we will join the parts of this security zone together soon by clearing the last areas where the terrorist organization is nesting in Syria,” he added.
Erdogan said Turkey showed the whole world that there is “no room for terrorism” in Turkey’s future.
