Turkey vows no slowdown in fight against IS after U.S. pullout from Syria


(Worthy News) - Turkey vowed on Monday that the fight against Islamic State would not be slowed by the U.S. withdrawal from Syria, where Ankara-backed rebels reinforced their positions around the potential flashpoint town of Manbij.

Erdogan and Trump agreed in a phone call on Sunday to establish military and diplomatic coordination to prevent a power vacuum from developing as the United States withdraws.

A committee of U.S. military officials will visit Turkey this week to discuss the details of the pullout with their counterparts, Kalin said, adding that Turkey would also increase coordination with Russia in Syria. [ Source: Reuters (Read More...) ]

  1. So what! Turkey vows allot things ........... and doesn't carry through. Maybe it's time for the dictatorship of Turkey to go away. Turkey didn't exist until the Ottoman Empire. In effect it is just the remnant of that empire.
