Turkey to Russia: We would not have been successful in Al-Bab without You
Ilnur Cevik, an adviser to Turkish President Erodgan, said on Monday at a conference dubbed “Relations Between Turkey and Russia: From Tensions to Boosting Cooperation,” that Turkey would not have carried out its “successful” operation against ISIS in Al-Bab without Russia’s support.
The conference was arranged by the Daily Sabah newspaper and the Turkish government’s Department of Press and Information.
“Without Russia’s support, we would not have been able to conduct a successful operation in al-Bab,” he said. “If some other country was carrying out this operation, it would not have been successful.”
