Республіка Туреччина Міністерство Закордонних Справ 18.10.2019

Baseless allegations that Turkey used chemical weapons within the scope of the Peace Spring Operation (PSO) were made in some international media outlets yesterday and today.

We categorically reject these flagrant slanders stemming from disinformation by the terrorist organization.

As stated on various occasions earlier, no chemical weapons exist in the inventory of the Turkish Armed Forces.

Turkey is a party to the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on their Destruction (CWC) since 1997. Turkey is also a party to all fundamental international instruments in the field of non-proliferation and also a member of export control regimes. In this context, Turkey fulfills all its obligations.

On the other hand, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) stated that no “investigation” has been initiated and the trustworthiness of the allegations has not been verified.
