  • Trump doubts public wants US involved in Syria

However, Turkey - a long-time North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally - has complained about Washington providing weapons and training to the groups that it perceives as a threat to its security and has designated as terrorists.

He said: "Such reckless attitude to this highly sensitive subject can set fire to the entire region, and we have to avoid it at any cost".

"I think the resurgence of Islamic State is already happening".

In February 2019 Trump had asked Europe to take back 800 ISIS fighters with European nationalities, after he declared a total victory over the so-called Islamic State.

"The United States didn't give Turkey a green light", Pompeo said in an interview with PBS NewsHour.

Australia is anxious Turkey's military incursion in northern Syria could galvanize a resurgence of the Islamic State group, and has refused to endorse the close ally USA for pulling back its troops from the area. Kurds said they were resisting the assault.

The Kurds also say they have repelled an attack by Turkish troops.

Monitoring groups allege at least 15 civilians were killed during the conflict.

The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) holds thousands of Islamic State fighters and tens of thousands of their relatives in detention.

More than 60,000 people have fled since the offensive began, the Observatory added.

On Thursday, the SDF said they held off another incursion attempt in the Ras al-Ain area, further east.

Chris Van Hollen and Lindsey Graham announced an outline to impose sanctions against Turkey for attacking Kurdish forces in Syria.

He says: "We are very concerned about the impacts of the measures on the humanitarian situation in Syria".

Senior Republican senator Lindsey Graham argued the United States administration had "shamelessly abandoned" the Kurds.

President Trump called the Turkish assault a "bad idea" and said he did not endorse it.

U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to pull forces out of the way was denounced by some Kurds as a "stab in the back" and strongly criticized in Washington, even by loyal senior figures in his own Republican Party.

A ministry statement said that Stoltenberg will have a bilateral meeting with Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and will also be received by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

"Canada firmly condemns Turkey's military incursion into Syria today", Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Twitter.

When asked Wednesday about the threat of ISIS prisoners escaping, Trump claimed that some of the most unsafe ISIS prisoners had been moved, "putting them in other areas where it's secure". "That's what we're looking at right now, we haven't seen significant examples of that so far".

When you say they're fighting with the USA, yes.

Turkey plans to resettle 2 million Syrians in a 30-km-wide (19-mi) safe zone to be set up in Syria, stretching from the Euphrates River to the Iraqi border, including Manbij. "If the EU and European countries don't want to work with Turkey then it will be their problem as well".
