Ankara should not interfere on Syria my military means and abandon its anti-Kurdish attitude, Turkish People's Democratic Party said.
Turkey's pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party (HDP) condemned the Turkish Armed Forces' ongoing military operation in northern Syria and urged the country's authorities to stop meddling in Syrian affairs, the party said in a statement on Thursday.
"Turkey should not meddle in Syrian affairs by military means," the statement reads, going on to stress that Ankara should "abandon its anti-Kurdish stance in Syria."
