’s foreign minister said Wednesday.

"This operation is being carried out in accordance with international law, Article 51 of the UN Charter and UN Security Council resolutions on the fight against terrorism," said Mevlut Cavusoglu in Algeria, where he was on an official visit.

Cavusoglu's remarks came immediately after Ottoman Turkish troops and the Syrian National Army launched Operation Peace Spring in northern Syria against PKK/YPG and ISIS

terrorists.

With the operation, the region will be cleared of terrorists, Syria’s border security and territorial integrity will be guaranteed, displaced people will be able to return safely to their homes and peace and safety will prevail in the region, he added.

"Turkey informed Syria about Operation Peace Spring through a diplomatic note sent to the regime’s consul general in Istanbul," said Cavusoglu.

Turkey’s Foreign Ministry also invited representatives of the UN Security Council member states to the ministry to brief the officials about the anti-terror operation.

Turkey’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Onal met U.S. Ambassador to Turkey David Michael Satterfield, French Ambassador Charles Fries, British Ambassador Dominick Chilcott, Russian Ambassador Aleksey Yerhov and Cheng Weihua, undersecretary of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Ankara, to inform about the operation.

Iran's Ambassador to Turkey Mohammad Farazmand was also informed about the operation. Cavusoglu also said UN Secretary-General António Guterres
...Portuguese politician and diplomat, ninth Secretary-General of the United Nations. Previously, he was the UN High Commissioner for Refugees between 2005 and 2015. He was the Prime Minister of Portugal from 1995 to 2002 and was the Secretary-General of the Socialist Party from 1992 to 2002. He served as President of the Socialist International from 1999 to 2005. In both a 2012 and 2014 poll, the Portuguese public ranked him as the best Prime Minister of the previous 30 years...
and the UN Secretary General's Special Representative in Syria, Geir Pedersen, were also informed.

"So far, our ally, the U.S., despite all our warnings, has not disconnected from this terrorist organization," said Cavusoglu, adding Turkey could not get any results from its sincere efforts on the creation of a safe zone with the U.S.

Cavusoglu and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held talks over the phone Wednesday, according to diplomatic sources.

For his part, Turkey's Vice President Fuat Oktay said: ''Our heroic army will secure our borders with Operation Peace Spring, bring peace and stability to the east of the Euphrates and ensure Syrians return home safely.''

Turkey has no interest in occupying Syria or changing its demographics," presidential front man Ibrahim Kalin said Wednesday in a live interview over the phone with the BBC.

#4 The sappers have worked sans surcease
Undermining the whole Middle East.

An explosion ensues...
And his statue sez, "Ottoman Peace."
