    The Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia, Adel al-Jubeir, said that Turkey knows very well that it is incapable of betraying the Syrian opposition with such ease, questioning the sudden and unexpected shift of attitude adopted recently by the Turkish Prime Minister.

    “He [Turkish PM] is aware that Turkey is vulnerable to be divided by the Kurds; making such a fatal mistake will probably lead Turkey to collapse”.

    Al-Jubeir’s remarks came as he held, yesterday, bilateral meetings with US Secretary of State John Kerry and National Security Advisor Susan Rice.

    “Under the current circumstances, Turkey cannot afford being attacked by the Turkish opposition forces. Unlike the Syrian armed opposition which is capable of overthrowing Syria’s Assad and standing against the Turks”, he added.

    Earlier this week, Turkish PM Binali Yildirim said improved relations with Syria were needed in the fight against terrorism and for stability in the region.

    Saudi Arabia summoned Turkish ambassador in Riyadh to provide more explanation for the controversial statement.

    Saudi threatening terrorist attacks against Turkey is the same as Iran threatening to retaliate Israel if attacked?
