Turkey's top security board convenes amid operations in Syria

World War 3 Turkey Erdogan army of Islam war attack all sides latest news

On March 18, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that Ankara had established full control over Afrin.

"Our operations against terrorism do not just contribute to our and the Syrians' security, but to Europe's security as well", Erdogan said. The EU has already committed €3 billion to help Turkey manage the refugee influx and another €3 billion is on the way.

"We are going to remind them [Tusk and Juncker] once more than Turkey will not tolerate hypocrisy", Erdogan said. Borissov plays a key role in the EU's policy for the Western Balkans, the Ekatermeri newspaper reports in a detailed commentary.

On Monday European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker called on Turkey to release the Greek military officers by the Greek Easter, which is on April 8 this year. He hoped that progress would be made in Turkey's accession process, and that the visa liberalization agreement would soon be finalized.

Turkey said it would prevent any further drilling off Cyprus without the direct involvement of the Turkish Cypriots.

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag on Monday stressed the historical regional rivals have a "positive and good relationship right now".


However, with regard to the military operation in Afrin, Erdogan said he expects the EU's support in dealing with terrorists.

"Only progress on these issues will allow us to improve EU-Turkey relations, including the accession process", he said adding: "We agreed that we should continue our dialogue in hard circumstances".

"In this sense, Turkey is not contemplating on taking any decision against Russia", Bekir Bozdag said after a cabinet meeting in the capital Ankara.

During a visit by Erdogan to Paris earlier this year, French President Emmanuel Macron said Ankara should settle instead for a looser "partnership" with the European Union and suggested no more progress was possible in accession talks.

"We encourage Turkey to work with the Council of Europe, of which Turkey has been a member longer than most European Union member states".
