On Monday, the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that Turkey will launch a new military operation on the Turkish-Syrian border to expand the Turkish-controlled “security zone” up to 30 kilometers inside Syria.

Turkish President confirmed that the Turkish army intends to carry out military operations to combat terrorism on the country’s borders.

In this regard, he stated that relevant decisions will soon be made during the Security Council session and “we will start taking new steps to complete the 30-kilometer deep safe zone in northern Syria.” This will be a seizing of territory controlled by the Kurdish SDF.

During a speech after the cabinet meeting, Erdogan also referred to his refusal to meet with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotaki.

“I will not meet with the prime minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, he no longer exists for me,” Erdogan said.
