U.S. says it will stand aside as Turkey moves into Syria

The White House said Sunday night that Turkey would soon begin an assault on a part of northeastern Syria where it wants to resettle Syrian refugees — and that U.S. forces wouldn’t be there to help or stop them.

In a statement issued late Sunday, the White House said Turkey would “soon be moving forward” with its military operation in northern Syria and that the United States wouldn’t be involved.

The statement was issued after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke by phone with President Donald Trump earlier on Sunday.
