Minister for Middle East’s comments on proposed Turkish military action in north east Syria


Speaking in Parliament earlier today Minister for the Middle East, Dr Murrison, made the following remarks:

We have been consistently clear with Turkey that unilateral military action must be avoided as it would destabilise the region and threaten efforts to secure the lasting defeat of Daesh.

As members of the Global Coalition, our focus remains on securing the enduring defeat of Daesh.

We will continue to work with the US and other international partners to this end.
