“As for specific ways to overlap the Turkish – Syrian border, as Turkish and Iraqi border, it is necessary to proceed from real opportunities on the ground, – said the head of the Russian foreign Ministry. – Can be used on the Syrian side and the Iraqi side of the Kurdish militias, which are allies of the US-led coalition. The U.S. has the forces in Iraq and Washington said that it can be applied in Syria. I am convinced that this can be done only with the consent of the Syrian government, but the special forces on the ground there”.
According to him, one of the obvious options is the “combination of the efforts of the Kurds, respectively, on the Syrian side of the border and on the Iraqi side of the border – and the efforts of the Turkish government in conjunction with U.S. special forces and possibly other countries of the coalition in regard to the Turkish side of Turkish-Syrian and Turkish-Iraqi borders”.
“If the creation of such barriers feed the ISIL will try to prevent the terrorists, the Russian aviation group in Syria together with the coalition led by the Americans, I am sure, and will be ready to provide air support to the terrorists did not intervene in the overlapping border for illegal shipments of oil in one direction and weapons and fighters to the other side”, – said Lavrov.
