Trump: US Will Impose 'Big Sanctions' Against Turkey for Onslaught on Kurds
Monday, 14 October 2019 23:42 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday promised "big sanctions" against Turkey for its invasion into northern Syria against Kurdish fighters, but again defended his withdrawal of American troops who had been fighting alongside the Kurds against Islamic State terrorists.

"Do people really think we should go to war with NATO Member Turkey?" Trump said on Twitter. "Never ending wars will end! The same people who got us into the Middle East mess are the people who most want to stay there!"

He contended that the Kurdish fighters "may be releasing some" Islamic State prisoners in an effort "to get us involved." But the U.S. leader said they could be "easily recaptured by Turkey or European Nations from where many came."

Trump said Sunday he is working with congressional leaders, including opposition Democrats, to impose the economic sanctions on Ankara.

Syrian forces entered a town near the Turkish border Monday, a day after reaching an agreement with Syrian Kurds to move into the region in an attempt to counter the Turkish onslaught.

Syria's state-run SANA news agency reported Monday's troop movement in Tal Tamr, about 20 kilometers from the border, saying it was done to "confront the Turkish aggression" and was welcomed by the people there.
