Syria is against Turkish Patriot plan

 

Damascus has censured Ankara’s plan to deploy advanced NATO Patriot missiles along the Syrian border, calling it another act of provocation by the government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Iranian Press TV writes about this.

Earlier this week, Turkey asked its NATO partners to deploy the surface-to-air Patriot missiles to protect its border with Syria. On Wednesday, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the alliance would consider the Turkish request “without delay.”

On Friday, Syrian Foreign Ministry officials accused Ankara of causing "tension and destruction.”

A Syrian official called the Turkish plan "a new act of provocation."

"Syria holds Erdogan responsible for the militarization of the situation at the border between Syria and Turkey, and the increase of tension," the unidentified official said on Syrian state television.

In Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the Turkish move could spark a regional conflagration, adding that any deployment of Patriot missiles by Turkey could tempt Ankara to use the weapons and spark a "very serious armed conflict" involving NATO.

"I understand that no one has any intention to see NATO get sucked into the Syrian crisis," Lavrov stated.

But "the more arms are being accumulated, the greater the risk that they will be used," he said.

The Syria crisis began in March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of army and security personnel, have been killed.

The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the insurgents are foreign nationals.
