He used the pretext of the US and Russia statement that agrees there’s no military solution to the resolving the Syrian war to justify his contradiction.

“It is hard for me to understand such statements,” the Turkish leader said, as cited by the Haberturk TV channel. 

“If a military solution cannot help find a way out of the crisis, then those who think so should pull their troops out of Syria,” he continued.
