Syria Rejects Any US-Turkish Deal That Constitutes Flagrant Aggression against Syrian State's Sovereignty, Territorial Integrity

DAMASCUS, (ST)- Syria reaffirms its absolute rejection of any form of US-Turkish deals that constitute a flagrant aggression on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic and a blatant violation of international laws and UN Charter, an official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in a statement to SANA on Friday.

The source's remarks came after Turkey said it will continue to discuss the planned demilitarization zone in northern Syria with the US and following its threats of launching a new cross-border incursion into the Syrian territory.

"The Turkish regime plans to launch aggression on Syria under the pretext of securing its national security, but such a pretext is belied by the behavior and policies of this regime which is still forming the main base for terrorism and a key provider of logistic support for the terrorists," the source made it clear.

 The source added that the Syrian Arab Republic strongly condemns the US destructive interference in Syria, stressing that this interference aims to prolong the crisis in the country and undermine its territorial integrity.

Syria has repeatedly warned of the danger of the American scheme in Syria which targets all the Syrians and now it is renewing its call on those who followed this scheme to reconsider their stances and stop being tools for targeting the homeland, the source pointed out.

Syria will continue fighting terrorism with all its forms until it is completely eradicated from the Syrian territories, said the source, adding that Syria will also keep confronting separatist schemes that threatens the country's unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity and will work constructively to end the crisis through a political process led by the Syrians themselves without any foreign interference as to restore security and stability to the country as a whole.
