Respect Syria's National Sovereignty and Territorial Integrity
The U.S. Peace Council strongly condemns the illegal incursion of the Turkish forces into Syria with the approval of the Trump Administration and in direct violation of the United Nation’s Charter and international law.
The air and land operation initiated by the Turkish Armed Forces will be deepening the chaos that Syria has been going through for a long time. It will have negative effects for Turkey herself. And definitely, it will have its consequences for the Middle East in general.
The World Peace Council denounces strongly the new, third invasion by the Turkish army to Syria.
After a period of military build-up of the armed forces of Turkey along the borders of Syria and the successive air strikes against Syrian targets, a dangerous escalation with ground troops-invasion is taking place these days.
Since 2013, 26 September has been, by decision of the UN General Assembly, the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons.

World Peace Council European member organizations have held a meeting in Basel, Switzerland on the 21 and 22 September.
The meeting, hosted by Swiss Peace Movement and presided by the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation, as WPC regional coordinator, started on the International Day of Peace, and also at the date of the 70th anniversary of the Swiss Peace Movement.
On 21 September, International Day of Peace, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) calls for commitment and mobilization in defense of the principles embodied in the United Nations Charter and the Constitution of the Portuguese Republic, such as sovereignty and the rights of peoples, the sovereign equality of states, the peaceful and negotiated settlement of international conflicts, the non-use of force or the threat of the use of force in international relations, the general simultaneous and controlled disarmament.
At the 80th anniversary of the beginning of World War II, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation recalls the brutal consequences of what was the most violent and bloody military conflict in history, triggered by Nazi Germany, fascist Italy and militaristic Japan, responsible for the loss of more than 50 million lives and tens of millions of injured.
