NATO to limit its participation in Syrian conflict to protection of Turkey
NATO is not intending to expand its role in the Syrian conflict, except for providing a platform for allies' discussions and doing its best to defend Turkey, which is an alliance member that borders Syria, Director of the NATO Information Office in Moscow Robert Pszczel said at a press conference on Friday in Moscow, RIA Novosti reported.
"NATO is an important forum for consultations among allies, and now it has become such for partners. This is important. The second element is what we do in terms of protecting the security of NATO member, Turkey, which neighbours Syria. That is why we have placed Patriot Missile Systems there," Pszczel said.
"The alliance is not going to do anything else involving the situation," Pszczel underscored.
