The Turkish authorities are ready to join special operations of the United States on the territory of Syria, if Syrian Kurds do not participate in them, Turkish Minister for Foreign Affairs Mevlut Cavusoglu said.
According to him, "if we join, they will have their own special forces, and we will have ours. We said that we agree, that the second front can be opened, but without the Democratic Union."
According to the diplomat, the prime goal of the "second front" of Turkey and the US is to put an end to the movement of militants and cargoes of the Islamic State terrorist group via the Turkish-Syrian border.
Cavusoglu believes that Turkey, the United States and their NATO allies, especially France, the UK and Germany should support the moderate Syrian opposition that.
"Unfortunately, both Russia and NATO consider terrorist groups as their partners and support them," he said referring to US support for the Syrian Kurds.
