Turkey's border operations do not threaten the territorial integrity of neighboring states, the country's Security Council said in a statement. Ankara announced these operations against the backdrop of objections to the entry of Finland and Sweden into NATO. This week, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that the country will launch an anti-terrorist operation on the border with Syria on May 26. In northern Syria, which is targeted by the new operation, Turkey has conducted several military operations since 2016 against the Kurdish YPG, which are recognized as terrorist in the country. “Operations that are or will be carried out on our southern borders are not directed against the territorial integrity of our neighbors and are necessary to ensure national security,” Anadolu agency quotes a statement. Turkey demands that these countries recognize the PKK as a terrorist organization, expedite the extradition of its members and persons associated with it, and lift the sanctions imposed against the country's military-industrial complex. According to him, the task will be to create a safe zone 30 km deep along the southern border. Ankara sees them as a Syrian offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) banned in Turkey. The operations that Turkey will conduct on the borders with Syria are aimed at ensuring national security, the authorities said. What else is missing in business?
