BRUSSELS, January 27. /TASS/. Turkey’s ground operation in Syria and Iraq about which Ankara has been talking, would lead to the region’s conflict escalation, Russia's Permanent Representative to the EU Vladimir Chizhov said on Wednesday at the European Policy Centre in Brussels at a panel discussion on Russia’s role in the Middle East.
Ankara has made statements about a possible beginning of a ground operation in Iraq and in Syria, Chizhov said. It would harm the overall regional situation and would lead to the further considerable escalation. Hopefully, these statements will not be implemented, he said.
