KUWAIT CITY, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- The military operation launched by the Turkish army in Syria poses a direct threat to the security and stability in the region, Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
"The military escalation risks undermining the chances of political solution sought by the international community after the tangible progress made in the quest for peace in Syria," an official source at the ministry said.
The source called on all parties concerned to exercise self-restraint and avoid resorting to military option that could exacerbate the suffering of the Syrian people.
In addition, he stressed the need to realize the aspirations of the Syrian people and maintain Syria's sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity.
Turkey launched airstrikes aimed at crushing Kurdish fighters in northern Syria on Wednesday after U.S. troops pulled back from the area.
