‘Withdrawal without a plan is chaos,’ said US Senator Lindsey Graham in Ankara on Saturday after meeting Turkish officials and Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Friday.
The US Senator from South Carolina met with the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Ankara to discuss Syria on Friday.
Speaking to the press on Saturday, Graham urged the US President not to repeat his perceived mistakes of the Obama administration.
Graham repeated that priority for the US should be to “contain Iran, destroy ISIS and equally important is to protect Turkey and solve the problem we created for our Turkish allies,” regarding the Kurdish armed groups of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) operating in Syria, which Turkey views as “a terrorist threat.”
