Turkish FM Cavusoglu speaks at Munich Security Conference

MUNICH, GERMANY - FEBRUARY 19 : Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu address to the 53rd Munich Security Conference at the panel of 'Old Middle East - New Crisis' in Munich, Germany on February 19, 2017. In his address to the Munich Security Conference, Cavusoglu called on the U.S. and other allies to end their support for the terrorist PKK's Syrian offshoot, PYD, and instead support the moderate opposition forces in a stronger way. 'Two days ago [U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff] Gen. [Joseph] Dunford was in Ankara to discuss all these technical issues. Yes, we proposed to the U.S. to put their Special Forces on the ground to support the local moderate forces,” he said. Cavusoglu underlined that the right group to support in the fight against Daesh should be the Syrian moderate opposition forces instead of the PYD/YPG, which are affiliated with the terrorist group PKK seeking an independent state. “Cooperating with a terrorist organization in our fight against another terrorist organization is very dangerous,' he said. “That is the mistake the previous administration in the U.S. made. They gave weapons to YPG and PKK got some of the weapons. And PKK used those weapons in their terrorist attacks in Turkey,” he said. Cavusoglu highlighted the success of the Syrian moderate opposition forces in the Turkey-led Operation Euphrates Shield in which Free Syrian Army fighters liberated significant areas along the Turkish border from Daesh, including large parts of Al-Bab in Syria’s Aleppo province. “We are about to take back Al-Bab. After Al-Bab, we can take back Raqqah together,” he said, referring to the stronghold of the terrorist group Daesh in northern Syria. The Turkey-led Operation Euphrates Shield began in late August 2016 to improve security and eliminate the terror threat along the Turkish border using Free Syrian Army fighters backed by Turkish artillery and jets.
