No: 348, 14 November 2017, Press Release Regarding The Secret Deal That The Terrorist Organization Pyd/ypg Reached With Deash For The Evacuation Of Deash Terrorists From Raqqa

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 14.11.2017

It is an extremely grave and eye-opening revelation that the so-called “Syrian Democratic Forces” dominated by PYD/YPG, the Syrian extension of the terrorist organization PKK, brokered a deal with the terrorist organization DEASH to evacuate a large number of DEASH terrorists from Raqqa while the operation to clear DEASH from Raqqa was already underway.

As we have emphasized on every occasion, the purpose of PYD/YPG in Syria is not to fight against DEASH, but to create illegitimate faits-accomplis on the ground, to occupy territories and to alter their demographic structures.

The deal sets a new example of the fact that fighting one terrorist organization with another would eventually result in these terrorist organizations colluding with each other.

We also deplore the statements of the spokespersons of the Global Coalition Against DEASH and the US Department of Defense whereby they not only did not deny the existence of the deal, but, on the contrary, expressed their “respect” for it.
