Turkey has finished preparations for a military operation in Syria, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at a news conference on Saturday ahead of his departure to New York.
Axar.az reports citing TASS.
In New York Erdogan will attend the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
"We have finished preparations [for a possible operation] along the border. We do not want confrontation with the United States [in Syria], but we cannot ignore their support to terrorist organizations," the president said.
"I told [US President Donald] Trump that [Washington] had funneled thousands of trucks loaded with arms. We were not able to buy those arms for money, but you are giving them to terrorist groups for free," Erdogan added.
Erdogan bashed the United States’ support to the Syrian Democratic Forces.
