Beirut, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 23rd Aug, 2019 ) :Syrian government forces surrounded a Turkish observation post in the northwest town of Morek on Friday after overrunning nearby areas, sparking anger from Ankara which vowed not to leave its outpost.

Speaking at a news conference in the Lebanese capital, Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said, "Our observation point there is not cut-off and nobody can isolate our forces and our soldiers. We are there, not because we can't leave but because we don't want to leave and the issue is being discussed with Russia and Iran".
