Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says his country would welcome a possible US military campaign in Syria in the wake of a suspected chemical attack in the Arab country’s northwestern province of Idlib.
Speaking in an interview broadcast live on nationwide Kanal 7 television network on Thursday, Erdogan said Turkey is ready to do its part if such onslaught takes place.
Addressing US President Donald Trump, who told some members of the US Congress Thursday that he is considering military intervention in Syria, Erdogan said, “Don’t limit yourself to comments, we need action.”
“If it truly is a matter of actions, then Turkey is ready to take its responsibilities. We will not back down,” the Turkish president added.
