Turkey wants Syrian opposition to leave the country

WALL – It was alleged that Ankara called for the Syrian Opposition and Revolutionary Forces National Coalition (SMDK) to leave Turkey, against the Damascus administration. According to the news in the Iranian agency Tasnim, a Turkish official had a meeting with SMDK President Salim al-Muslat last week.

The report alleged that the Turkish official, whose name has not been released, told al-Muslat that ‘Ankara is determined to restore relations with Damascus and that the Syrian opposition forces must accept this fact’. Accordingly, it was stated that the Syrian opposition should find a ‘new country’ and stop all political activities in Turkey.

Sources speaking to Tasnim stated that SMDK accepted this request. It was alleged that al-Muslat offered to go to Saudi Arabia, but the President of the Syrian Interim Government, Abdurrahman Mustafa, offered to go to Jordan.


Recently, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu met with SMDK Chairman Salim al-Muslat​, Negotiation Commission Chairman Bedir Camus and Syrian Provisional Government Chairman Abdurrahman Mustafa. In his post on his Twitter account, Minister Çavuşoğlu said, “We appreciate and support the opposition’s contribution to the political process within the framework of UN Security Council Resolution 2254.” (EXTERNAL NEWS)
