US Defense Secretary Mark Esper has warned Turkey to halt its incursion into northeastern Syria, warning it could have “serious consequences” for Ankara, the Pentagon said Friday.
In a phone call on Thursday with Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, Esper “strongly encouraged Turkey to discontinue actions in northeastern Syria,” the Pentagon said in a statement.
“While the secretary reaffirmed we value our strategic bilateral relationship, this incursion risks serious consequences for Turkey,” the statement said.
