BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told lawmakers from his political party on Tuesday that his regime will not accept the remarks made by U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton on Turkey’s role in Syria.

The Turkish President also made a bold claim that his nation’s armed forces were responsible for clearing the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) from Syria.

“Syria is rapidly being freed of the Daesh menace thanks to heroic efforts of our soldiers. But we cannot accept remarks by [US National Security Adviser John] Bolton,” Erdogan said, as quoted by the Anadolu News Agency.

Erdogan said Turkey is determined to eliminate “terror corridor” in the north of Syria, adding that Turkey made no distinction between terrorist groups.

“For Turkey, there is no difference between PKK, YPG, PYD or Daesh,” he said.

He said Turkey’s preparations to eradicate Daesh in Syria’s north “together with other terrorist organizations along the way”.

“Very soon we will act to neutralize terrorist groups in Syria. And we will take out other terror groups that might try to prevent us from doing this,” he said.

Erdogan said Turkey has always respected his allies, adding that his country expected the same attitude from its allies.

They all claim to be winners, all were in Syria to fight Isis,arm the democracy loving rebels from the “Evil Assad” and to protect the world from the menacing Iran. That’s their story and they’re sticking to it. I call it covering their back side and saving face. They won’t admit their dastardly deeds but no deed is hidden as God knows all.

Erdogan Sultan will succeed to rebrand the remaining IS Jihadi to FSA.
This way his nation’s armed forces will be responsible for clearing the Islamic State from Syria.

p.s. Erdogan Sultan was successful in his oil dealings with IS. He rebranded it legal Kurdish oil. So why should his rebranding now fail.

@Karel, more than that he is fighting to rebrand IS to FSA on all fronts. That way the world will get rid of all IS.
