Turkey will fight against ISIS and other "terrorist" groups in the region but will stick to its aim of seeing Syrian President Bashar Assad removed from power, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday .Turkey shares a 1,200 km (750-mile) border with Iraq and Syria and is already struggling with 1.5 million refugees from the Syrian war alone.It fears that U.S.-led air strikes, if not accompanied by a broader political strategy, could strengthen Assad and bolster Kurdish militants allied to Kurds in Turkey who have fought for three decades for greater autonomy.
