Erdogan Refuses to Meet Bolton After Fallout Over Syria Withdrawal

E-mail Print PDF

Erdogan refuses to meet with BoltonTurkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan refused to meet with National Security Adviser John Bolton on Tuesday, saying Bolton had made a “serious mistake” in introducing new conditions for the U.S. military withdrawal from Syria.

Before he arrived in Ankara, Bolton said that no U.S. troops would leave Syria until Turkey agreed to not attack the Syrian Kurds. The U.S. has backed the Kurds in the fight against ISIS. But during a speech in parliament, Erdogan—who sees the YPG Kurdish militia as a terrorist organization—said Turkey would never compromise on the Kurdish issue.

TVNL Comment: Bolton thinks he can dictate to the rest of the world.  Trump is simply an idiot who should not be allowed to speak at all.  The Kurds must be protected, and a promise from Turkey not to attack them would be a sad joke.
