Qatar: Turkey’s Olive Branch Operation In Afrin is Legitimate

Agencies (Qasioun) – The Qatari foreign ministry’s spokesman Lulwah Rashif Al-Khater said that Turkey's counterterrorist operation in Syria’s Afrin region was motivated by legitimate security concerns.


Al-Khater said “The launching of the Turkish military operation last Saturday was motivated by legitimate concerns related to its national security and the security of its borders, in addition to protecting Syria’s territorial integrity from the danger of secession,”


“Turkey, a NATO member, has always been a stabilizing factor in the region,” she said.


Al Khater added that Qatar is “fully confident of the Turkish Republic's keenness to preserve the safety of civilians and the unity of Syrian territory”.


Noteworthy that Turkey launched a military operation called Olive Branch against the PKK/PYD militant groups in Syria’s Afrin that seeks for security and stability along Turkish borders and the region.
