MOSCOW, November 27. /TASS/. Islamic State gunmen receive weapons from Turkey, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem said on Friday after talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
"Turkey is hand in glove with terrorist groups against Syria on ideological grounds as it considers these groups as a kind of offsprings of the Ottoman Empire," he said "Turkey continues to ensure export and transportation of oil stolen by the Islamic State from Syria and Iraq. This oil subsequently goes to ports in other countries. The same situation is with wheat and cotton, which are stolen by the Islamic State from Syria and delivered to Turkey. Moreover, plants and factories that used to work in Aleppo were dismounted to be re-assembled in Turkey."
"In exchange, Islamic state gunmen receive weapons and are granted safe passage. They don’t have to be parachuted in Syria," the Syrian top diplomat said. Gunmen from more than 100 countries receive weapons and logistics support from Turkey," he said. "Turkey offers medical service to them and provides shelter."
The Syrian minister said he hoped cooperation between Russia’s Aerospace Forces and the Syrian army "will put an end to [Turkish President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan’s dreams and ambitions."
