Turkey To Pay ‘Economic Price’ If Syria Operation ‘Unfair’

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would devastate Turkey’s economy if Ankara’s operation in northeast Syria wipes out the Kurdish population there.

Asked by a reporter if he was concerned Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will wipe out the Kurds, Trump replied: “I will wipe out his economy if that happens.”

Earlier on Wednesday, Turkey launched a long-threatened military operation in northeast Syria to remove Kurdish-led forces from the border area and create a “safe zone” to resettle millions of Syrian refugees.
