Ankara Advances Turkification Policy in Syria

Tuesday 19 November 2019

MOSCOW (TASS) — Turkey is trying to cement its presence on the occupied Syrian territories by employing the policy of Turkification, Syrian Ambassador to Moscow Riad Haddad said Tuesday at a session of the Russian Federation Council (upper chamber) convened to discuss protection of national sovereignty.

Haddad underlined:

Turkey did not stop at hoisting its flag over the occupied territories. It also opened governmental Turkish establishments, is advancing the Turkification policy and changed its school curriculum as if to say, “we returned to the Medieval times when any state could seize a territory off another sovereign state, disregarding international law designed to spare the world from the scoured of war”,

The Syrian diplomat stressed that his country had fallen victim to “a new kind of infringement upon sovereignty of state and interference in its domestic affairs” when external players brazenly support terrorist groups. “These gangs received military, political and financial aid from the countries who forgot that such actions are outlawed by the international law”, Haddad pointed out. “Not only did these countries finance and support terrorism, they also pursued aggression against Syria’s sovereignty by illegally deploying their troops on my country’s territory establishing their control over areas in the eastern region where US, French and British troops are present that are stealing natural treasures of the Syrian people.”
