Erdogan: Turkey will take necessary measures in Syria when necessary

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday the Syrian government’s offensive in the northwest was forcing Turkey to use its right to defend itself and Ankara would take action if necessary.

Syrian forces have surrounded opposition fighters and a Turkish military post in northwestern Syria in an offensive aimed at recovering the land and towns it lost at the start of the war.

Speaking at a news conference in Moscow after talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, Erdogan said the attack had undermined calm in the Idlib region, adding that the attacks were unacceptable.
