Turkey will continue to support Turkmens under Russian attacks in Syria: National Security Council

The National Security Council (MGK) on Wednesday concluded that Turkey's determination to continue its support to the Turkmens in Northwestern Syria who are being targeted by the Russian airstrikes will continue. The statement was released after the seven-hour long meeting, which took place in the Presidential Palace in Ankara.

Turkish top officials also discussed other critical matters mainly focusing on the anti-terror operations against the PKK and Daesh.

The council reiterated determination to fight against terror and Turkey's stance on the Syrian crisis, adding that a solution to the atrocities in the country cannot be achieved with Bashar al-Assad, or the Democratic Union Party (PYD) terrorist organization, which is the Syrian wing of the PKK.
