Erdogan: Turkey to resume operation in Syria unless U.S. fulfills its promise

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Ankara will resume Operation Peace Spring in Syria unless Washington fulfilled its promise on withdrawing Kurdish militants from the People’s Protection Units in the northeast.

"Unless they keep their word, we will continue the operation with greater resolve," Erdogan said ahead of flying to Sochi to meet with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

"By now, some 700-800 terrorists have left the security zone and we expect that by 22.00 another 1,200 militants will leave these territories," TASS cited the Turkish leader as saying.
