Representatives of the State Department and the United Nations have expressed opposition to a new Turkish military operation in Syria, following recent announcements by the Turkish President.

US diplomacy warned Turkey on Tuesday against launching a new military operation in northern Syria, stressing that it would endanger the lives of US troops.

Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, announced on Monday that the Turkish military would soon launch a new operation in northern Syria to establish a 30km “security zone” along the border.

The United States, through its State Department spokesman, Ned Price, has said it is “deeply concerned”. He stated that they condemned any escalation and supported the maintenance of the current lines of the truce.

In New York, UN envoy, Stefan Duzarik, also voiced international opposition to any new Turkish military operation in Syria. The agency is in favor of defending Syria’s “territorial integrity” and what the country “needs” is “no more military operations, wherever they come from,” he said when asked about the expected Turkish operation.
