Azerbaijan plays key role in preventing terrorist penetration into Syria – Erdogan


Terrorist organizations like Islamic State, PKK, PYD, YPG, the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party/Front (DHKP-C) and the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party (MLCP) are all the same, with the common ambition of weakening Turkey, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in an interview with APA, Trend and AZERTAC.

 

“Thanks to standing as one body, one soul against terror and terrorist organizations, we did thwart the most malicious coup attempt in our history which was made by the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) and resulted in the death of 250 citizens and left 2,193 more wounded,” said Erdogan.

 

Erdogan thanked President Ilham Aliyev and the people of Azerbaijan for demonstrating solidarity with Turkey against this treacherous organization.

 

“I want to especially thank my dear brother President Ilham Aliyev and the Azerbaijani people for their solidarity against this treacherous organization. I know that the Azerbaijani people, watching the news from Turkey on July 15, took the same position with us and sincerely wished that this treacherous coup attempt failed,” said the Turkish president.

 

FETO is a threat to every country it has presence in, Erdogan stressed. “Therefore, we’re content with the action Azerbaijan has been taking against FETO-linked structures,” he added.  

 

Erdogan noted that Turkey actively cooperates with Azerbaijan in the fight against terrorism, as well as in other spheres.

 

He said that the operational cooperation between the authorized bodies, as well as growing exchange of intelligence data and information continues.

 

Azerbaijan plays a key role in preventing the penetration of terrorists from abroad to Syria and conducts useful work in this field, added Erdogan.
