Ankara is ready to send ground troops to Syria to fight the self-styled Islamic State. The way for this possibility has been paved by the Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, during the press conference after the summit with his Italian counterpart, Paolo Gentiloni. “Airstrikes against Daesh in Syria are not enough – Cavusoglu said-. We need a strategy along with airstrikes, we need an effort on the ground.”

The hypothesis of an intervention together with Saudi Arabia, discussed during the last hours, has been disproved. For the head of Turkish diplomacy, this is a case of “misinformation”. Turkey, he added, “will not act alone nor with Saudi Arabia. We have to decide all together.”

With regard to the ongoing civil war in Syria, where Bashar Al Assad’s government troops fight the rebels, Ankara has reiterated that they need a “ceasefire and political transition”. Same line carried out by the Minister Gentiloni. “The situation in Syria is very serious from a humanitarian standpoint and very difficult from a strategic one – the minister said-. However, Italy needs to join the forces against Daesh and believe in the prospects opened by the international group. The premises of an agreement which were announced by Kerry are encouraging and worth being supported”. Italy, he added, “has always been convinced that the diplomatic solution and the opening of a transition process in Syria is the path we have to follow.”
