Government of Turkey
Turkey's president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan criticized foreign media on Oct. 14 for using misinformation on the country's ongoing Operation Peace Spring in northern Syria.
Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is confident that Greece will be able to deal with Turkey's increasingly aggressive behavior in the Aegean and off the coast of Cyprus thanks to its "strong" alliances and foreign policy, while he also feels that the Turkish operation in Syria risks "adding another source of instability in an already unstable part of the world."
Anger in Congress, surprise at the State Department and Pentagon, concern among allies and partners: Donald Trump's decision to abandon long-standing, bipartisan American support for the Kurds sparked a plethora of reactions, as the US president's erratic behavior becomes harder to follow, much less interpret.
Second day of Turkish offensive against Syrian Kurds. Dozens of strategic goals have been hit, including power lines and oilfields.
According to Turkish President Erdogan, more than 100 Kurdish troops have been killed in the past two days. Civilian casualties were reported on both sides of the border.
