Overseas Network, October 12 - Turkish Army launched a military operation code-named Spring of Peace to Kurdish armed forces in northern Syria from 9. U.S. Treasury Secretary issued a sanctions warning to Ankara on November 11, while Turkey responded in strong terms.

Turkeys Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hami Aksoi, said in a statement recently that if the United States imposed sanctions on Turkey because of Syrias actions, Turkey would take response measures, according to the Russian Satellite News Agency on December 12.

The U.S. Treasury announced its readiness to impose sanctions on Turkey as a result of the fountain of peace operation. Turkey is fighting against terrorist organizations that pose a threat to national security and will continue to fight resolutely. Axoi said.

According to the previous report, Turkey said that the fountain of peace operation and the United States at all levels of government through the gas.

For the United States, the attitude of the Trump administration is ambiguous as conflicts erupt between a teammate who jointly fights against the Islamic State and a long-standing regional ally. After withdrawing troops from northern Syria before the Turkish operation, Trump argued that the Kurds had been abandoned because they had not helped the United States in World War II, and on the 10th Trump expressed his willingness to mediate between the two sides. But from the domestic point of view, the two parties rarely reach an agreement. Republicans and Democrats announced on October 10 that they were planning to impose sanctions on Turkey.

Since the Turkish army launched a military operation against Kurdish forces in northern Syria on September 9, many civilians have been killed and injured, and about 100,000 civilians have fled their homes. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Syria condemned the civilian casualties caused by Turkeys military operations in northern Syria on October 10, saying that Syria will take all legal means to combat them.
