Ex-Turkish official to ST: US-led strike on Syria achieved no success

Former Turkish Deputy Prime Minister has said that the tripartite strike carried out by the US, UK and France against Syria last Saturday has achieved no success and it has been welcome by Turkish regime because Erdoğan’s government and Trump’s government are strategic partners.

In a statement to the Syriatimes e-newspaper on Wednesday, Dr. Abdullatif Şener asserted that the United States does not want stability in Syria and it wants to partition it, describing the US-led strike on Syria as ‘kickback’.

“Erdoğan’s government and Trump’s government are strategic partners. They always confirm this. Therefore, it is normal for the Turkish government to support an operation by the United States,” Dr. Şener said, affirming that the Turkish people did not welcome the strike.


He added that the strike had not achieved any success and the leaders of the countries that carried out the strike – Trump, Marcon and May- were intensively criticized all over the world.

Last January, the former Turkish official told ST that all terrorist groups in Syria are the soldiers of Israel and the United States and they are committing evil acts against the Syrian people to serve the interest of hostile countries.
