President Erdoğan called the Trump administration to keep their promises before heading to India

U. S. troops have been deployed along the Syria-Turkey border. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan called the Trump administration to keep their promises and said that anti-terror operations will continue in the region.

U.S. soldiers attended the funeral of PKK terrorists who were killed in an airstrike in Syria while hundreds of U.S. troops have been deployed along the Syria-Turkey border. Video released on the internet shows U.S. army armoured vehicles entering Qamishli, near the border. The U.S. military officials visited a group of YPG terrorists, the armed forces of the PKK terror group's Syrian wing.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan called the Trump administration to keep their promises. Before heading to India, Erdogan mentioned that anti-terror operations will continue.

"Unluckily the existence of American flags in a convoy where there are the rags of the terror groups' such as YPG in these conveys saddened us deeply. We will show them to the U.S. President in our visit on the 16th." President Erdoğan said in a statement.

"If the fight against terrorism is not conducted on a common platform, then terror will hit us today and others tomorrow. We have to share this. We will have to continue our operations like we did in Karaçok and in Sinjar. As I said yesterday we may come overnight; I meant this. We will not inform the terror groups in that region before we go. However they will be aware that Turkish Military Forces can come here at any time." he added the statement.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan hinted at a new operation against the presence of the PKK and its PYD/YPG offshoots in northern Iraq's Sinjar region and northern Syria.
