We take Erdogan's threats seriously, Syrian Kurdish envoy says
A member of the representative office of the Syrian Kurdistan self-ruling government in the Iraqi Kurdistan region said the administration would take serious the threats of Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over attacking the Kurdish regions in northern Syria.

Erdogan said on Monday that his country was determined to eliminate threats originating in northern Syria, adding a possible attack by Kurdish People Protection Units (YPG) militants that killed two Turkish police was "the final straw."

"We have no patience left regarding some regions in Syria which have the quality of being the source of attacks on our country," Erdogan said in a news conference following a cabinet meeting.

Two Turkish police were killed on Sunday in a guided missile attack in northern Syria's Azaz region, which Turkey said was launched by the YPG, according to the Interior Ministry.

"Although no danger is currently threatening the northern borders of Syria, we are not indifferent to Turkish military movements on the borders of Syrian Kurdistan," the Kurdish Envoy Fathullah Husseini told Kurdpress in an interview.

"Erdogan's threats are always scary and dangerous, and we are by no means indifferent to them, but currently nothing poses a threat to northern Syria," the Kurdish official said, referring to Turkey president's threats.

Mr. Husseini continued as saying that: "Russia and the United States do not agree with Turkey's new invasion on Syrian Kurdistan and have warned Turkey against such a move."

"Turkey, and especially Erdogan, are not in a good situation, both inside and outside Turkey, and they threaten from time to time in order to divert Turkish public opinion from their problems," the Kurdish envoy further said.

Meanwhile Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday Turkey would “do what is necessary for its security” after the past days events.
