Ehmê: Erdoğan wants a 'safe zone' for jihadists at Europe borders
Ehmê said that the Turkish state aims to threaten both the Middle East and Europe in many ways.
North-East Syrian Autonomous Administration spokesman, Loqman Ehmê, talked to ANF about Erdoğan's regime transfer of mercenaries from Syria to Libya and said the Turkish state wants to create a "safe zone" for jihadists on the European border.
The Turkish state is now trying to establish a "safe zone", similar to that it is creating in northern Syria for mercenaries belonging to Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Al Nusra, in Libya.
Ehmê said that Erdoğan administration is trying to turn the Middle East into a bloodbath while implementing its Ottoman dream.
Talking to ANF, Ehmê said that the Turkish state aims to threaten both the Middle East and Europe in many ways.
Stressing that the Turkish state is continuing its policies based on demographic change in North-East Syria, Loqman Ehmê said: "We have been saying that the Turkish state has been determining the agenda that threaten our region, the Middle East and Europe for many years. The occupation of Bab, Jarablus and Girê Spî and Serêkaniyê carried out by the Turkish state aims at establishing a state of terror in these regions.
Threat to Europe and the Middle East
Ehmê noted that the Turkish state plans to threaten both the Middle East and Europe with the "Libya move" and added: "Turkey is following a different path in the Middle East and Africa. To begin with ita established a presence in Sudan and Somalia. In Qatar it has established military bases. Turkey is trying to meet its energy needs in this way. The agreement with Fayez al-Sarraj in Libya, Turkey plans to take control of the energy corridor from Middle East to Europe."
Ehmê added that "Erdoğan is also threatening Europe with this latest move." Indeed, he added, "Libya is on the European border. Turkey aims at reaching Europe by threatening to take control of the energy corridors, as well as with the threat of jihadists. This would be the second card Turkey will have to threaten Europe. The first being the refugees card."
Ehmê said that in fact the Turkish regime is becoming a threat for everyone and added: "While we were saying this in 2014, we were not taken seriously by those who now see clearly this threat. If this threat is not dealt with now, it may actually require huge prices to be paid in the future."
Ehmê said that Erdoğan has transferred mercenaries from Syria to Libya because he wants to create a "safe zone" for jihadists on the European border, exactly as he is doing in Northern Syria.
"It is clear to anyone by one - said the Autonomous Administration spokesperson - that these groups are not some kind of opposition fighting for the rights of the people. These are Erdoğan's mercenaries. They have been gathered from Guta, Dera, Aleppo and brought to Idlib, then to Serêkaniyê, Girê Spî and now to Libya."
