(Before It's News)

Turkey’s president has threatened an opposition daily of paying a heavy price over publication of footage that allegedly shows Turkish National Intelligence Organization sending weapons to militants in Syria.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the story and footage published by Cumhuriyet daily are a slander against the intelligence agency. Erdogan accused the daily of involvement in espionage on state security. The Turkish president also threatened not to let those who made the story get away with it. The video shows intelligence agency trucks carrying mortar shells, grenade launchers and ammunition rounds to Syria. The payload is hidden under boxes of antibiotics. Ankara denies sending arms to anti-Damascus militants in Syria. Turkey and a number of Arab nations are widely believed to have been training and arming the militants since the conflict began in 2011.

Iran: West Unable to Obtain Goals through Supporting Terrorism

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif underlined that the western supporters of terrorism in the region have come to realize that they cannot achieve their objectives by supplying financial and arms support for the terrorists groups.

“Today supporters of terrorists have been isolated and they have been forced to cooperate with the Syrian government and nation and they have realized that they cannot ensure their security and influence through cash aids or selling warfare toys in the region,” Zarif said in a meeting with Syrian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Jahad al-Laham in Tehran on Tuesday.

The Iranian foreign minister underlined Iran’s firm stance on supporting the Syrian government and nation in their fight against terrorism and extremism, and said, “I felicitate you, (Jahad al-Laham) as representative of the people of Syria and Mr. Bashar Assad, for your historical resistance against the terrorists.”

Zarif said that trilateral coordination among Iran, Iraq and Syria, specially in fighting terrorism and the ISIL benefits the region, and added, “We believe that the regional problems should be resolved by the regional countries.”

The Syrian parliament speaker, for his part, appreciated Iran’s support for Syria, and said, “We are facing an oppressive war in Syria and the standing of Syria’s friends, specially Iran, has enabled us to resist terrorism and extremism.”
