The US and Russia could drive the world into a global war if the conflict in Syria is not resolved, Turkey has warned.
Tensions have become increasingly heightened between Washington and Moscow in recent weeks. Last week, the US and UK warned Russia and its ally the Syrian government that new economic sanctions could be imposed if the bombing of Syria’s besieged Aleppo continues.
On Sunday, Russia condemned Washington for making “unprecedented” threats of cyber attacks following accusations by the Obama administration that Moscow had hacked computers belonging to American political organisations.
Turkish deputy prime minister Numan Kurtulmus said: “If this proxy war continues, after this, let me be clear, America and Russia will come to a point of war,” the Daily Mail reports.
