Turkey will not join Russia's operation in Syria, Paul Goble, the publicist, the former analyst at CIA and the US Department of State, told Trend on Oct. 12.
He was commenting on possible accession of Turkey to Russia's operations against the Islamic State (IS) in Syria after the recent terrorist act committed in Ankara.
"I don't think Turkey will join Russia because Russia is defending Bashar Assad not fighting IS," he said.
As a result of the terrorist act committed in Ankara October 10, some 95 people were killed and more than 240 people were injured.
According to the preliminary data, IS militants are responsible for the attack.
