YEREVAN.- There is a possibility of Turkey’s military intervention in Syria, Director of Institute of Oriental Studies Ruben Safrastyan told reporters on Monday.
Another scenario suggests that assistance rendered to rebels will be reduced. “Nevertheless, taking into account Ankara’s policy, the likelihood of military actions is increasing,” he added.
Safrastyan believes military intervention was one of the issues discussed during Secretary Clinton’s recent visit to Turkey.
“Most likely, the issue of possible NATO military operation was discussed. However, the alliance is not ready to launch military campaign at least till the U.S. presidential election scheduled for the end of this year. It is proved by Clinton’s proposal to set up a joint working group,” Safrastyan noted.
