Days before Turkey launched its operation in Syria on 9 October, the United States announced its intention to pull out its military service members from the country. The move has been widely condemned as a “betrayal” of the US-allied Kurds.
The United States has abandoned their Kurdish allies in Syria leaving them behind to deal with the Turkish offensive on their own, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a statement on Wednesday.
"The US has been the closest ally to the Kurds. And yet they abandoned them, essentially betraying them and now they prefer to keep the Kurds at the border and virtually force them to fight the Turks", the spokesman said.
According to Peskov, it is obvious that the Syrian Kurds will be steamrolled by the Turkish Army if they do not pull out from the border.
