Iran urges Turkey to stop military offensive in Syria


Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif 

Tehran: Iran on Wednesday urged Turkey to end its military operation in northern Syria.

The Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that all the relevant concerns in the border region of the two countries should be addressed through Adana agreement, Xinhua reported.

He also called for the protections of civilians against any "unnecessary suffering".

Based on Adana agreement, Syria is committed to rejecting the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which is considered as a terror group by Turkey, EU and the US, and to prohibiting its operation against Turkey from Syrian soil.

Damascus would cooperate with Ankara in taking measures to assure that the PKK would no longer be welcome in Syria, according to the Adana agreement.

Following recent US withdrawal from northern Syria, Turkish soldiers have launched an assault on Kurdish fighters, whom Turkey considers as "terrorists" in northern Syria.
