Iran : Turkish military bases in Syria would be "unacceptable"
Iran on Monday described as" unacceptable " any initiative by Turkey to establish military bases in Syria, where Ankara launched an offensive in the north against Kurdish fighters, suspended after a truce agreement.
"Turks can have the bases they want and do what they want on their own territory and within their borders, but if you talk about (...) the establishment of Turkish bases in Syria is unacceptable", said the Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Abbas Moussavi. Such an initiative would be regarded by Tehran as "an aggression against the national sovereignty and territorial integrity of an independent State", he added at a press conference broadcast on State television. "Of course, it will be opposed by the Islamic Republic of Iran and other countries," said Mr Moussavi.
