Deputy Foreign Minister Faruk Kaymakçı said Thursday that Ankara and Brussels needed to implement more joint efforts in assisting Turkey in its fight to combat terrorism, adding that the EU should not only focus on the fight against Daesh, but also increase its efforts against the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ), PKK and its Syrian affiliate, the YPG.
"The EU has not cooperated with us efficiently. When we declared Operation Peace Spring, we weren't able to receive as much as cooperation as we hoped for in terms of the fight against terrorism," Kaymakçı told representatives of foreign press outlets in Ankara.
On Oct. 9, Turkey launched Operation Peace Spring to eliminate YPG terrorists from the area east of the Euphrates River in northern Syria, in order to secure Turkey's borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees and ensure Syria's territorial integrity.
