Turkey will pay price for supporting Syria militants: Iran MP

An Iranian lawmaker says the Turkish government will suffer the consequences of its wrong policy of supporting terrorist groups in Syria,according to Press TV.

“Supporting the extremist groups, which have infiltrated into Syria from different countries and have no respect for any principle, is one of the wrong policies that the Ankara government is pursuing,” Aziz Akbarian said on Wednesday.

 He went on to say that training terrorist groups  in Turkey, which come from different ethnic and religious backgrounds, will presage a dangerous future for that country.

On December 25, members of the main Turkish opposition party, the Republican People’s Party, said Libyan and Saudi terrorist groups are freely entering Syria via Turkey's border.

They added that Turkish military escorts and protects the militants on their way to join terrorist groups in Syria.

Analysts believe that the move is part of an anti-Syria plot hatched by the US, Qatar and Saudi Arabia to fuel the unrest in the country by increasing the number of militants fighting against the government.

    “Meddling in the internal affairs of Syria, which has a representative in the United Nations and is independent, is against the international law and will create new precedence for interfering in countries’ internal affairs,” Akbarian pointed out.

The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the armed terrorists are foreign nationals.
