Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday warned Russia that Ankara has alternatives to Moscow for building its first nuclear power plant and importing gas, as tensions rise over the Russian bombing campaign in Syria. Russia is building Turkey's first nuclear power plant in Akkuyu on the shores of the Mediterranean, a controversial $20 billion project aimed at improving its energy self sufficiency. Turkey is also one of the top importers of Russian gas and had joined forces with Moscow in a major project to build a new gas pipeline underneath the Black Sea. But speaking to Turkish reporters en route to Japan, Erdogan warned Moscow such cooperation was at risk due to its bombing of Syria and violations of Turkish airspace. "Losing Turkey would entail significant losses for Russia," Erdogan said. "Others can build the Akkuyu plant if the Russians don't." "Russia has already invested $3 billion in this project. In this case, it's Russia who should act with more prudence." He added that energy-poor Turkey was even capable of going elsewhere for its natural gas supplies. "We are a number one consumer of Russian natural gas. If necessary, Turkey can take its natural gas from many other different places," he added. "We are saddened that Russia is acting in a way that could provoke the loss" of its economic interests in Turkey, he said. Erdogan this week warned Russian President Vladimir Putin he risked losing Turkey as a friend if Moscow continues its behaviour in Syria. More»

Russia dramatically escalated its air war in Syria Wednesday, unleashing heavy bombardments and cruise missile strikes from the Caspian Sea as cover for a major Syrian army ground offensive against rebels. Russian President Vladimir Putin said Moscow had begun synchronising its strikes with the army's ground movements as the Kremlin voiced willingness to make contact with Western-backed rebels that Washington and its allies accuse it of targeting. Putin, who turned 63 Wednesday, said Russian warships had fired cruise missiles on Islamic State group positions in Syria for the first time. A video map released by Russia's defence ministry showed the missiles launched from warships in the southern Caspian Sea and flying close to 1,500 kilometres (930 miles) through Iranian and Iraqi airspace before hitting targets in Syria. A Syrian military source told AFP government troops had begun a broad ground operation Wednesday near the village of Latmeen in Hama province, aided by Russian air cover. More»

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Thursday there had been a "troubling escalation" in Russian military activity in Syria, after Moscow dramatically expanded its air campaign. "In Syria, we have seen a troubling escalation of Russian military activities. We will assess the latest developments and their implications for the security of the alliance," Stoltenberg said as he went into a NATO defence ministers meeting dominated by the Syrian crisis. "This is particularly relevant in view of the recent violations of NATO's airspace by Russian aircraft," he added. More»

The White House expressed deep concern on Wednesday about the escalating violence in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem and urged Israelis and Palestinians to restore calm after a spate of attacks. "The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms violence against Israelis and Palestinian civilians," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at a news briefing. More»

Russian warplanes have carried out "intense" new strikes in two Syrian provinces, a monitoring group said Wednesday. Planes "believed to be Russian" hit at least four locations in central Hama province, and three locations in northwestern Idlib province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The Britain-based group had no immediate tolls from the strikes overnight and in the early hours of Wednesday which were "more intense than usual". "For the first time the strikes were accompanied by fighting on the ground between regime forces and rebels," said Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman. He said the clashes took place in Hama province and began when regime forces including pro-government militias launched an attack on rebels as Russian planes carried out air strikes. More»

Russia will consider extending its air strikes against militants in Syria to Iraq if it receives such a request from Baghdad, the RIA news agency quoted the head of the country's upper chamber of parliament as saying on Tuesday. The speaker, Valentina Matviyenko, said Russia had so far not received such a request from the Iraqi government. More»

The skies over Syria are increasingly crowded — and increasingly dangerous. The air forces of multiple countries are on the attack, often at cross purposes in Syria's civil war, sometimes without coordination. And now, it seems, they are at risk of unintended conflict. The latest entry in the air war is Russia. It says it is bombing the Islamic State in line with U.S. priorities, but the U.S. says Russia is mainly striking anti-government rebels in support of its ally, President Bashar Assad. The Russians, who are not coordinating with the Americans, reportedly also have hit at least one U.S.-supported rebel group. That opens the possibility, however unlikely, of the Americans and Russians coming to blows. For its part, Turkey in late August began airstrikes in Syria as part of the U.S.-led anti-Islamic State coalition. Turkish warplanes are fully integrated into the coalition attack plan, as are those of Australia, which began flying strike missions over Syria in September. France also began bombing in September.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged "a fight to the death against Palestinian terror" as clashes spread after two deadly attacks, while Jerusalem's Old City was closed to Palestinians for a second day Monday. The Israeli premier's comments late on Sunday came as he convened security chiefs immediately after landing back from the United States to discuss the clashes in occupied east Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank. Palestinian youths throwing stones and firebombs have faced off against Israeli security forces using both live rounds and rubber bullets. Israeli settlers have also clashed with Palestinians. The rioting has followed three attacks in recent days that have killed four Israelis and wounded several others, including a two-year-old child. More»

Russia's bombing campaign in Syria is a "grave mistake" and its support for the regime will be judged by history, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned on Sunday. "The steps Russia is taking and the bombing campaign in Syria are quite unacceptable to Turkey," Erdogan told reporters at Istanbul airport before leaving for a visit to France. "(...) Unfortunately, Russia is making a grave mistake," he said. Given Moscow's friendly relations with Turkey, its actions in Syria are "worrying and disturbing," Erdogan said. The strikes will "isolate Russia in the region," he predicted. Russia and Turkey have long been at odds over Syria, with Moscow emerging as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's key international backer and Ankara seeing his ouster as the only solution to the conflict. "What's Russia trying achieve there anyway?" Erdogan asked. "It intervened because this was what the regime in Syria demanded. But there's no obligation to respond like this every time a regime insists on it," he said. Erdogan blamed "not only Russia" but also Iran, which was defending Assad and "waging state terrorism" in Syria. "The countries that cooperate with the (Syrian) regime will be accountable to history," he warned. Russia, which began the air strikes in Syria last week, insists the operation only targets jihadists. But Turkey and several of its Western allies have said moderates fighting Assad's regime have also been hit. Erdogan on Saturday urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to reconsider Moscow's bombing campaign, accusing the Russian military of turning a blind eye to the killing of dozens of civilians. Turkey has long been lobbying for a "safe zone" free of IS fighters, where some of the two million Syrian refugees hosted by Turkey could go. The plan has met with only a lukewarm reception from Turkey's partners and its prospects may be further dimmed by Russia's air campaign. But Erdogan on Sunday vowed to push hard on the idea of a haven. "It has by no means dropped off our agenda. But there has to be a no-fly zone too. Otherwise, the area could be lethal." Erdogan said Turkey had spent $7.5 billion (6.69 billion euros) on Syrian refugees -- a burden that, he said, was part of Turkey's "moral duty. More»
