  1. The intent here is to import a large amount of non Kurdish Syrians to an area that used to be majority Kurdish to break up what it views as a Kurdish strong hold.

    > Addressing academics in Ankara, Erdogan also repeated that Turkey would act on its own if the zone, planned jointly with the United States in Syria’s northeast, failed to materialize.

    >“Through making east of Euphrates a safe place, and depending on the depth of this safe zone, we can resettle 2-3 million displaced Syrians currently living in our country and Europe,” he said.

    >“We want to see strong support from European countries, both on the issues of Idlib and the region east of Euphrates. We are full for words, and we expect action,” Erdogan added.

    >Turkey hosts 3.6 million Syrian refugees. Its troops are also stationed in Syria’s northwest Idlib region, where a Russian-backed government offensive has pushed north in recent months, raising the prospect of a new wave of refugees.

    >“If we cannot establish peace in Idlib swiftly, we will be unable to shoulder the burden of 4 million Syrians living in that region,” Erdogan added.
