UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Washington has decided to no longer engage in “ridiculous endless wars,” said Donald Trump.
So the American leader commented on the reports of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and the Arab-Kurdish units of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on the withdrawal of US troops from the border with Turkey in northern Syria.
“The Kurds fought with us, but they were paid huge amounts of money and (supplied. – Ed.) Equipment for this. They fought with Turkey for decades, <…> it’s time for us to get out of these ridiculous endless wars, many of them are fought between the tribes, and bring our soldiers home,” Trump wrote on Twitter .
According to the head of state, Turkey, Europe, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Russia and the Kurds will themselves figure out what to do with the militants of the Islamic State.
Erdogan said earlier that the US military is leaving areas in northern Syria where Turkey plans to conduct a military operation against the Kurds.
He specified that the goal of Ankara would be to cleanse the Syrian border from the self-defense forces of the Syrian Kurds, create a security zone there to accommodate the Syrian refugees in Turkey.
The SDF, in turn, emphasized that the United States thereby violated its agreements with Kurdish forces.
