Trump’s Turkey Threat Not to Change Syria Troop Pullout: Pompeo

Trump’s Turkey Threat Not to Change Syria Troop Pullout: Pompeo

Alwaght- US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday President Donald Trump's threat to devastate Turkey economically if Ankara attack the Washington-backed Kurdish militants in Syria would not change plans to pullout troops from the West Asian country.

Asked what Trump meant by economic devastation, Pompeo told reporters in Riyadh: “We have applied economic sanctions in many places, I assume he is speaking about those kinds of things. You’ll have to ask him,” Reuters reported.

 “I don’t think it changes the president’s decision for our 2,000 uniformed personnel to depart Syria,” he added.

Relations between the two NATO allies have been strained over US backing for the Kurdish YPG, which Turkey views as an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) that is waging a decades-long insurgency on Turkish soil.

Trump said on Twitter the United States was starting the military pull-out from Syria he announced in December but would continue to hit ISIS terrorists there, adding: “Will devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds.”

Commenting on the safe-zone issue, Pompeo said Washington wanted to provide security for those who have fought against ISIS and to prevent any attack on Turkey from Syria.

“If we can get the space and the security arrangements right it would be a good thing for everyone in the region,” he said.
