Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India

Unilateral military offensive by Turkey

October 10, 2019

We are deeply concerned at the unilateral military offensive by Turkey in north-east Syria

Turkey’s actions can undermine stability in the region and the fight against terrorism. Its action also has the potential for causing humanitarian and civilian distress.

We call upon Turkey to exercise restraint and respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria.

We urge the peaceful settlement of all issues through dialogue and discussion.
