    Agencies (Qasioun) – The Turkish national defense minister, Nurrettin Canikli called during his visit to Qatari and Turkish forces on Monday for strong alliance to defeat the threats to regional states’ territorial integrity.

     

    Canikli said: “Recently, there have been some elements of risk threatening our territorial integrity and independence in this region.

     

    “Threats have constantly increased in size. Turkey, right now, is in fight with the three bloodiest terror groups in the world at once,” -- a reference to the PKK, Daesh and the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO).

     

    “Maps and borders of countries are being reshaped, especially in the Middle East and the Gulf area,” he said.

     

    Canikli also said “global forces” had launched a number of operations against Turkey and its neighboring countries.

     

    “We should work in coordination with the countries targeted to resist to these projects,” he added.
