In an interview broadcast on Turkish Star TV channel, Gen. Buyukanit noted that he still shares the view that Turkey should not send a single soldier to Afghanistan.

"Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) is currently fighting against terrorism with tens of thousands of troops in another region. I leave it up to your judgment to send Turkish troops to Afghanistan when TSK is already fighting against terrorists," Gen. Buyukanit remarked.
