We Fear No Trump Threat, Turkey Declares
Turkey has taken a firm stand that it will not be intimidated by any threat whatsoever coming from anywhere.
United States President, Donald Trump had warned of devastating economic consequences over any attack on Kurdish forces, but indicated Ankara was open to the idea of a security zone in Syria.
But Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu said the country remain unshaken amidst threat.
“We have said repeatedly we are not scared of and will not be intimidated by any threats.
“Economic threats against Turkey will get nowhere.” He said during a press conference in Ankara with his Luxembourg counterpart Jean Asselborn.
He added that Turkey was “not against” a “security zone” in Syria.
US forces, now set to pull out, have fought alongside a Kurdish militia in northern Syria against the Islamic State (IS) group.
Turkey, however, regards the People's Protection Units (YPG) as terrorists.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has spoken angrily about American support for the group and vowed to crush it.
