Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım says Turkey 'resolutely' continues with fight against terrorism said during AK Party’s provincial women’s congress in Muğla.
The fight against terrorism is Turkey's "most legitimate right", Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım said on Sunday.
"Wherever the threat -- directed to our country -- comes from, that place is a target for us. The fight against terrorism is our most legitimate right," Yıldırım said during ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party’s provincial women’s congress in western Muğla province.
Yıldırım said Turkey "resolutely" continues with its fight against terrorism.
He added that Syria's strategic Rajo town was cleared of terrorists during Turkey's ongoing operation in the war-torn country.
"We want peace in the region. We want brotherhood. We want tranquility. We want establishment of an environment of trust. That is what we are struggling for," he said.
Yıldırım said Afrin will be handed over to the real owners after clearing it of terrorists, exactly like after Operation Euphrates Shield, which began in late August in 2016 and ended in March 2017.
"We are there to relieve the pain of our Syrian, Iraqi brothers," he added.
