Islam Times - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened European Union countries that if they try to describe Operation Peace Spring as an occupation, Turkey will open its doors and send 3.6 million refugees to them.
“The EU says it will not send the second batch of 3 billion euros in aid to Syrian refugees. You have never delivered on your promises and we have not relied on you. We will manage, but at the same time we will open the doors to the refugees.” He added.
“We still host 300,000 of our Kurdish brothers who came to our country from the Syrian city of Ain al-Arab,” Erdogan said. “We are not fighting our Kurdish brothers in the east of the Euphrates, but we are fighting the terrorist organization and Turkey is perhaps the only legitimate force within Syrian territory. ”
Erdogan stressed that the objective of the spring is to contribute to the peace process in preserving the unity of Syrian territory and political unity.
