U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday defended his decision to not get his country involved in the intense fighting along the Turkish border.
Axar.az reports citing Anadolu Agency.
“Very smart not to be involved in the intense fighting along the Turkish Border, for a change. Those that mistakenly got us into the Middle East Wars are still pushing to fight. They have no idea what a bad decision they have made. Why are they not asking for a Declaration of War?” Trump said on Twitter.
Referring that Turkey has been combating terror groups for many years, he said Turkey considers the PKK the worst terrorists of all.
“..The Kurds and Turkey have been fighting for many years. Turkey considers the PKK the worst terrorists of all. Others may want to come in and fight for one side or the other. Let them! We are monitoring the situation closely. Endless Wars!” he added.
Trump announced that the U.S. would pull back its forces from the Syrian border after a telephone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
He reiterated that his administration is unwillingly mulling economic sanctions under pressure from American lawmakers but that he hasn’t made his decision yet.
