Attack on Syria's Idlib would cause humanitarian, security risks

Erdogan failed to secure a pledge for a ceasefire from Russia and Iran, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s main backers, at a trilateral summit in Tehran, Reuters reported.

 

In a newspaper article published by Wall Street Journal, the Turkish President called on the international community to take action, and warned that “the entire world stands to pay the price” otherwise.

 

“All members of the international community must understand their responsibilities as the assault on Idlib looms. The consequences of inaction are immense,” Erdogan said.

 

“A regime assault would also create serious humanitarian and security risks for Turkey, the rest of Europe and beyond.”
