REPORT: Trump: Turkey will face ‘swift, strong, and severe’ sanctions if it doesn’t protect religious minorities in Syria
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
President Trump said he warned Turkey it would face economic sanctions if it does not protect religious minorities in northern Syria while it conducts military operations there.
The president’s decision earlier this week to withdraw American troops from northern Syria, thereby opening the region to an invasion by Turkey, was met with consternation among Trump’s usually loyal evangelical supporters. Trump attempted to assuage their fears that Syria’s minority Christian community would suffer increased persecution as Turkish forces clash with other actors in the region.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I have made clear to Turkey that if they do not meet their commitments, including the protection of religious minorities … we will impose very swift, strong, and severe economic sanctions,” said Trump at the Values Voter Summit, a gathering of social conservatives in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.
