Trump says US has not 'abandoned the Kurds' in Syria
President Donald Trump on Tuesday (October 8th) insisted that the US has not "abandoned the Kurds" with his decision seemingly giving the green light for Turkey to attack Kurdish militias inside Syria, AFP reported.
"We may be in the process of leaving Syria, but in no way have we Abandoned the Kurds, who are special people and wonderful fighters," Trump tweeted.
He stressed that Washington has an important relationship with NATO member and trading partner Turkey.
He also said that "any unforced or unnecessary fighting by Turkey" would prompt "devastating" consequences for the country's economy.
