Turkish President revealed, Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday that Turkey had received an offer for the sharing of oil resources in Syria, but his country refused because of "interest in human beings."
"Some foreign powers plan to share oil in Syria," Erdogan said in a speech today during his participation in the opening of an international ombudsmen conference in Istanbul.
Erdogan added: "Turkey has received an offer to participate in this process, but Ankara rejected this proposal, saying that its concern is not in resources but in saving people."
He continued: "Although many countries without hesitation, based on their oil and political interests, armed alliances with terrorist organizations, but we continue to adhere to our generous position on this issue, and for this reason we can not avoid being slandered."
He pointed out that his country's forces "not only to keep terrorist organizations away from the borders of the country, but working to dry up the sources of terrorism wherever they exist."
He considered that the efforts made by Turkey in the fight against terrorist organizations, not only serve the security of the country but the international community as a whole.
