“Don’t be silly or hard”: Trump to Erdogan

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, asked his Turkish counterpart, Recep

Tayyip Erdogan, reach an agreement before the invasion in Syria.

“Let’s work for a good agreement. You don’t want to be responsible for massacring thousands of people and I don’t want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy, and I will be,” he said in the letter released yesterday by US media.

Trump said he “has worked hard to solve some” of Turkey’s problems.

“History will look favorably on you if you do this in the right and humane way. They will look at you forever like a demon if things don’t work out. Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be silly!” Trump wrote.

The letter was published hours after Trump denied giving Erdogan a green light for his offensive and added that he would publish the letter he sent at the beginning of the operation on October 9.

The Turkish government started Operation Peace Spring after Trump announced that his country’s troops would leave Syria.

This, despite the alliance between the Kurdish groups and Washington.

Since then, the international community condemned Ankara’s actions and warned that the operation could have a negative impact on the fight against the jihadist group.

After that, Syria was deployed in various parts of the country.

Meanwhile, yesterday, in a phone call Russian President Vladimir Putin invited Erdogan to visit Russia at the end of October.

“The leaders of the two countries continued to discuss the situation in the Syrian Arab Republic, including in the north of this country,” said the Russian government.

Moscow drew attention to the deterioration of the Syrian border.
