Tensions between Ankara and Washington have further escalated over the Kurdish issue as Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu announced last week that Ankara would launch a military operation east of the Euphrates River if the US failed to withdraw its troops from the Arab Republic in time.

“Cooperation with terrorists will lead nowhere. May we remain hungry, without food and water, but we will do everything that is necessary. The United States and all other countries should show sufficient respect for Turkey”, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlet Cavusoglu said, addressing the US president’s warning of “economic devastation” should Ankara target US-backed Kurdish forces in Syria.

“We see that Trump is under great pressure so that he does not withdraw troops from Syria, and he is in a difficult situation, but, nevertheless, it is impossible to discuss such topics via social networks”, Cavusoglu added.

Earlier in the day, Ibrahim Kalin, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s spokesperson has taken to Twitter to respond to the recent comment by the US president.
