Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on Russia and the United States to withdraw troops from the Syrian territory as a political solution to the crisis. This is reported by RIA Novosti.
"It is said that the crisis is not solved by military means. Therefore, let them withdraw their troops and soldiers, and the solution to the crisis will be political. Let's look for ways to go together, "the president said.
He also pointed out that the Turkish side was against the invasion of US troops in Iraq in 2003.
"Sometimes something is said, but unfortunately, something else happens. In the north of Syria, America has five military bases and eight other territories, totaling 13. There are weapons that the United States has brought to Syria. Russia has five military bases in Syria, "Erdogan said.
