Erdogan: Turkey Has No Intention Of Declaring A Ceasefire In NE Syria

President Tayyip Erdogan told U.S. President Donald Trump that Turkey will never declare a ceasefire in northeastern Syria.

According to Reuters, Erdogan added he was unconcerned by U.S. sanctions over Ankara’s offensive.

He also said he told Trump Turkey would “not negotiate with a terrorist organization” in response to Trump’s mediation offer.

Erdogan told Russian President Vladimir Putin that Turkey’s incursion into Syria would contribute to counter-terrorism efforts.

Additionally, Erdogan told Putin the incursion would strengthen Syria’s territorial integrity, and aid a political solution process.
