EU calls for more restraint from Turkey on SyriaFriday, 16 February 2018 17:55
Mogherini said the EU had reiterated this position to the Turkish authorities on Friday, adding that she joined Tillerson’s call for them to “demonstrate restraint in their military actions”.
The US Secretary of State had again called on Turkey, during a visit to Ankara, to exercise restraint in its offensive against the Kurdish Union for the Protection of the People (YPG) militia in the Afrine enclave in northwest Syria. Ankara has been carrying out this offensive, codenamed “Olive branch” since the 20th of January.
However, Tillerson stressed that the United States and Turkey wished to move ahead together to overcome their current crisis in Syria.
