Trump calls for end to killings in Syria, praises Turkey

Dec 27, 2019 16:01 IST

US President Donald Trump has called for the governments in Moscow, Damascus and Tehran to stop the bloodshed that has displaced thousands in Syria's rebel-held province of Idlib. Russian bombardments have hit Syria’s last major opposition bastion since mid-December, as regime forces make advances on the ground despite an August ceasefire and United Nations calls for a de-escalation. Trump remarks come after Turkey called for the attacks to ‘come to an end immediately’, after sending a delegation to Moscow to discuss the flare-up. Trump praised Turkey's efforts, tweeting that Ankara ‘is working hard to stop this carnage’.
