Speaking in the House of Commons of Great Britain, the Head of British diplomacy Boris Johnson assessed the current situation in Syria and Mosul, where military operations are continuing.
Johnson noted that barbaric decisions and actions of the Assad regime, supported by the Russian Federation, only impede the process of combating terrorism in Syria. He believes that struggle of Turkey against the terrorist organization ISIS is an invaluable contribution to solving this issue.
As for the military operation to liberate the Iraqi city of Mosul, Johnson expressed confidence that the city will be liberated from the terrorists, even though it would take a lot of time.
It should be reminded, that operation "Euphrates Shield" continues in Syria. The "Euphrates Shield" is a joint military operation carried out by the special operation groups with the Turkish Armed Forces and the Air Forces of the international coalition against ISIL terrorist organization in Syria, which started in the early morning of August, 24. The main objectives of the offensive are to clear the frontier regions from IS terrorists, ramp up the border security, provide support for the territorial integrity in Syria, as well as to prevent the creation of so-called "Kurdish corridor” on the southern border.
