Operation Olive Branch
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuoğlu has dismissed French President Emmanuel Macron's critique of Turkey's cross-border operation in Syria against YPG, the Syrian branch of the PKK, saying the French leader "sponsors terrorism."
Turkey is the last wall between Europe and terrorism. This is stated in the position of the Turkish Ministry of Defense.
"Turkey is protecting not only its own borders, but also the borders of NATO. Turkey's security is the security of all of Europe, including NATO," the ministry said in a statement.
