Turkish dailies mostly covered in their Thursday issues Turkey's concerns over PKK presence in Syria, Wednesday's "Security Summit" at Turkish Prime Ministry in Ankara and Turkey's suspension decision at its border gates with Syria. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.
Most of the Turkish dailies published Turkey's further measures against PKK after the terrorists group's Syrian offshoot gained control over the cities along Turkish border. Daily SABAH quoted Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan as saying, "From our point of view, any new organization in the north of Syria means a new terrorist organization for us. If any attack occurs from this region against us, we have a right to intervene. We are not able to accept the cooperation between PKK and its offshoot in Syria."
Turkish dailies also covered the "Security Summit" that was held at Turkish Prime Ministry in Ankara. Dailies mentioned that Turkey's PM Erdogan held a meeting with Chief of General Staff Gen Necdet Ozel and several ministers in the capital city to discuss acts of PKK terrorist organization in the country and neighboring countries. Daily HURRIYET stated that it was the first time the government had highlighted the presence of PKK in Syria using the term of "neighboring countries" referring to Syria along with Iraq.
Lastly, Turkish dailies also focused on their Thursday edition Turkey's suspension decision at its border gates with Syria. Daily ZAMAN quoted Turkish Customs & Trade Minister Hayati Yazici as saying, "Turkey has not closed down border gates with Syria. We have only suspended the procedures at the gates, crossing of Turkish citizens as passenger or with commercial purposes via Turkey's Cilvegozu, Oncupinar and Karkamis border gates to Syria have been suspended."
