The United Arab Emirates has condemned in “the strongest terms” the Turkish military aggression in Syria, state news agency WAM reported on Wednesday, October 9th.

This aggression represents a serious development and an unacceptable, flagrant assault on the sovereignty of a brotherly Arab state in defiance of international law and blatant interference in Arab affairs, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said in a statement.

The UAE expresses its firm stance and rejection of acts affecting the sovereignty of Arab states and their national security and threatening international peace and security, warning of the consequences of this aggression against the unity and territorial integrity of Syria, in addition to the political process in that country, the ministry noted in the statement.

UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr Anwar Gargash said that wide Arab condemnations of the Turkish aggression against Syria are not surprising.

The minimum of joint Arab action has rejected the aggression in the Arab region. On the other hand, the international stance rejecting the Turkish aggression stems from the rules of international law and from a common perception that the situation will get more complicated by this move, Dr Gargash wrote on Twitter.
