Ankara will act more resolutely in Syria, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that in his speech that was televised by the NTV television channel, Erdogan noted that the operation in Syria was requiring serious efforts and claiming the lives of Turkish servicemen.
He did not say however which steps it would be, stressing only that Ankara "will not bend before global powers’ scenarios."
"Turkey’s policy in Syria and Libya is not adventurism it stems from the national interest," the Turkish leader stressed.
The situation in Syria’s Idlib de-escalation zone deteriorated dramatically in late January when Syrian government troops staged a counteroffensive to retaliate ceasefire violations by militants. A larger part of the Aleppo and Idlib governorates has been liberated.
