ANKARA, October 12. /TASS/. Turkey and Russia stand out as the only countries that oppose the breakup of Syria, Senior Advisor to the Turkish Prime Minister Mehmet Akarca told Russian reporters on Wednesday.
Akarca said that the West was seeking to gain dominance over the Middle East.
"Those who were behind the creation of the Islamic State terrorist organization (banned in Russia) and those who are to plotting break up the region are the same actors as those who are scheming against Syria now," Akarca said. "At present, Turkey and Russia are the only nations that confront them."
"Turkey and Russia are the only states that stand up to Syria’s territorial integrity," he said in conclusion.
