Trump warns Turkey of economic devastation
U.S. President Donald Trump warned Turkey of economic devastation if it attacks Kurdish forces in the wake of the U.S. troop pullout from Syria, while also urging the Kurds not to "provoke" Ankara.
"Will devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds," the U.S. leader tweeted, while pushing for the creation of a 30-kilometer "safe zone."
"Starting the long overdue pullout from Syria while hitting the little remaining ISIS territorial caliphate hard, and from many directions. Will attack again from existing nearby base if it reforms. Will devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds. Create 20 mile safe zone," Trump wrote on his Twitter.
Trump did not detail who would create, enforce or pay for the safe zone, or where it would be located, the Telegraph reported.
