Turkey Carries Out Air Strikes On Afrin In Syria

"Preserving countries' independence and maintaining geographical borders will lead to promotion of security in the region, and we should make efforts and take measures in a way that no country feels threatened by its neighbors", he added.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu paid a surprise visit to the Iranian capital Tehran on Wednesday.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, said Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Hassan Rouhani discussed latest developments in Syria.

Ankara and its allies have been carrying out a ground and air assault on Afrin for the past three weeks, aimed at driving out the US-backed People's Protection Units (YPG), which the Turkish government views as an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

Abdurrahman Bilgic met a group of British journalists in a news briefing held at the embassy residence and underlined that the operation is being carried out within the scope of the worldwide law.

Even though conditions suggested otherwise, stand-in captain Aiden Markram won the toss and surprisingly chose to bowl first. Historically, Newlands has been lucky for South Africa as they played 33 matches at the venue, and won 28.

"Turkish foreign minister, for his part, said that Turkey does not have an eye on Syria's land", adding that Turkey's ongoing operation in Syria is temporary and it is only targeting "terrorists" there.

"We believe that we should stand up to plots that aim to undermine territorial integrity of regional countries", Cavusoglu said.

"Fortunately, trilateral ties among Iran, Turkey and Russian Federation over regional issues have been highly significant and instrumental", Rouhani said, calling for further cooperation and consultations to solve the Syrian crisis. He again called the Turkish offensive in Afrin and intended operation in Manbij as a distraction from the fight against Daesh.

In Turkey, Tillerson will meet with senior Turkish officials to discuss "a range of bilateral and regional issues", said the US State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert in a statement.
