Ankara, January 10 (RHC)-- In Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned recent remarks by national security adviser John Bolton in which Bolton said Turkey should protect Syrian Kurdish fighters as a condition for U.S. troop withdrawal from Syria.
Turkey considers the Syrian Kurdish fighters to be part of a terrorist group. Erdogan, after apparently refusing to meet directly with Bolton during his Turkey trip, said he had agreed with President Trump that the U.S. would withdraw quickly, while Turkish forces would counter the remaining threat of ISIS on the ground.
