President Trump Threatens Economic Retaliation if Turkey Attacks Kurds

Turkish US foreign ministers discuss Syria on phone Pompeo Says The U.S. Troop Withdrawal From Syria Is Just A 'Tactical Change'

Journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a US resident, entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2 seeking documents that would have allowed him to marry his Turkish fiancée, Hatice Cengiz.

Trump unexpectedly announced last month that US forces would be leaving Syria, causing confusion and concern among USA allies. His declaration of victory against ISIS was far from unanimous, and officials said USA defense and military leaders were trying to dissuade him from ordering the withdrawal right up until the last minute.

He said the United States envoy for Syria, Jim Jeffrey, had travelled to northeast Syria this week and would soon go to Ankara for talks, including on moving forward a UN-led political process to end the eight-year long conflict in Syria.

In a Sunday-night tweet, Trump said his government was starting the "long overdue pullout" from Syria while hitting the "little remaining" Islamic State "territorial caliphate" and would attack again from a nearby existing base if the jihadist group regroups. In a televised speech in December, he said Turkey's army would be ready "neutralize terrorist organizations" in upcoming months, according to the Financial Times.

But, he added, "we also know that those are fighting alongside of us for all this time deserve to be protected as well".

When Pompeo said earlier this month that the USA wants to ensure "the Turks don't slaughter the Kurds", Turkey denounced Pompeo, saying he exhibited "a worrying lack of information".

US President Donald Trump has threatened to "devastate" Turkey's economy if it carries out a military offensive against Kurdish fighters in Syria, drawing a response from Ankara which warned Washington against "shadowing" the countries' strategic partnership with "terrorist propaganda".

"We have achieved the goal that we set out to achieve", he said.

Turkey views some Kurdish groups as terrorist organisations operating in the region.

US Colonel Sean Ryan, a coalition spokesman, said the coalition "has begun the process of our deliberate withdrawal from Syria".

What has Mike Pompeo said?

Pompeo discussed latest developments in Syria during a phone call with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu on January 12.

Trump's hasty announcement in December of a USA exit from the war-torn country has caused confusion among allies and adversaries alike, and it also led to the resignation of Defense Secretary James Mattis. "Morale is good" among diplomats, he said.

Multiple operations including US-backed assaults have removed ISIL fighters from most of the swaths of Syria and Iraq they captured in 2014.
