Sîhanok Dîbo: Turkey confused to choose between Russia, US 

Sîhanok Dîbo said that the meeting between Putin and Erdogan is part of the crises witnessed the Middle East and Turkey in particular. He added that Turkey is suffering from the crisis of choosing between Russia and America, which will naturally result in high costs for Turkey.

The member of the presidential council of the Syria Democratic Council, Sîhanok Dîbo talked to our agency, Hawar news (ANHA) about the causes and repercussions of the meeting which brought together the Presidents Erdogan and Putin on Monday.

Dîbo urged Ankara to open to the Autonomous Administration in North and East of Syria "because it is the essence of the equation of the Syrian solution to end terrorism, and to achieve the Syrian democratic change that assures the unity of the Syrian sovereignty."

Dîbo said, "This meeting in which the Presidents Putin and Erdogan participated is the third of its kind since the beginning of this year and the first after the termination of Daesh geographically and militarily by the Syrian Democratic Forces, in addition to the elections that took place in Turkey, which led to a significant decline of the Justice and Development Party."

Ankara has reached a dead end and must choose one of the parties

Dîbo described Erdogan's talk about the unity of the Syrian territories as a duplication, and added, "It seems that the visit did not go beyond the question of how the two sides would preserve the provisions of the Sochi Agreement of 17 September 2018. Ankara has reached the stage of closure because it is in fact supporting terrorism whether Daesh or Jabhet al-Nusra, while Ankara occupies today an area comparable to the size of Lebanon from Syrian territories."

Sîhanok Dîbo pointed out that the time has come for Turkey to choose to any side it will be, Russian or American, and this will result in high costs for Turkey of course. If it chooses America, it will lose all its existence and the entire occupied territories in Syria, especially Afrin. If it chooses the Russian side, the Turkish crisis will intensify and thus Erdogan will lose all of Turkey and all the territories he occupies in Syria.

Turkey has to open up to Autonomous Administration

And he added, "Ankara has to be convinced that there are other options, the openness to Autonomous Administration in North and East of Syria because it is the essence of the formula of the Syrian solution to end terrorism and achieve Syrian democratic change, confirming on the unity of the Syrian sovereignty."

The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday that he would discuss with Moscow officials a military operation east of the Euphrates.

"This thing, of course, cannot be achieved, and there are no circumstances to help," he said.

And added, "In the east of the Euphrates, there are SDF's fighters, and there is a popular resistance that rejects any Turkish attack, as well as the task of the International Coalition against terrorism takes on new facets that are still in place."
