DHAKA: Any terrorist entity trying to exploit the power vacuum in Syria would be considered a common threat, Turkey`s foreign minister and Kurdistan Regional Government’s (KRG) leader have said in a press statement.
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu was in Arbil to discuss the recent developments in Syria with KRG President Massoud Barzanion Wednesday, reports daily Hurriyet.
A press statement was released following the meeting between Davutoğlu and Barzani, saying any attempt to exploit the power vacuum in Syria by a terrorist organisation would be considered a common threat for both Turkey and the KRG that would be ‘jointly addressed’.
‘The new Syria should be free of any terrorist and extremist groups or organisation,’ the statement said.
Turkey has expressed concern over possible cooperation between the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the Kurdish leadership in Syria’s north, in which the latter has managed to take over the control of numerous Syrian cities without violence.
