US says Turkey agrees to a ceasefire in Syria
The deal made with Turkey is “essentially validating” the Turkish offensive, a senior US official told CNN.
“This is essentially the US validating what Turkey did and allowing them to annex a portion of Syria and displace the Kurdish population,” the official said.
The official continued:
“This is what Turkey wanted and what POTUS green lighted. I do think one reason Turkey agreed to it is because of the Kurds have put up more of a resistance and they could not advance south any further as a result. If we don’t impose sanctions then Turkey wins big time.”
