Erdogan: Turkey has right to fight terrorist abroad

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan remarked on Wednesday that his country has the right to fight terrorists inside and outside its borders if they pose a threat to national safety.

Speaking at the meeting of his Justice and Development Party's (AKP) parliamentary group, Erdogan said the attacks on terrorists' positions in Syria and Iraq, where Turkey's Operation Claw-Sword is taking place, began by air but will soon continue by ground. "If our opponents cannot fulfill the requirements of the [peace] agreement, we have the right to take care of ourselves," he stressed.

Erdogan's new statement on the operation came just days after it was launched in an effort to suppress the activities of the groups that Turkey designates as Kurdish-led terrorist organizations, those being the Syrian Democratic Forces, the Syrian Army, and the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in Iraq.
