Erdogan called conditions of taking action in northeast Syria: "If safe zone in Syria fails..."

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday stated that Turkey would act on its plans in northern Syria if the safe zone planned with the U.S. bears no results, ONA reports citing Yeni Safak.

"The 2-3 million Syrian refugees in Turkey  and Europe can be resettled in the safe zone east in northern Syria," Erdogan said at an opening ceremony in capital Ankara.

Mr Erdogan added that if Western countries don't share the burden, Turkey can't shoulder the responsibility of 4 million Syrians.
