Pentagon Chief says he will press NATO allies to take measures against Turkey

U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Monday he will meet with NATO allies next week to press them to take “diplomatic and economic measures” in response to Turkey’s incursion into Syria.

As reported by Reuters, in a statement, Esper said Turkey’s military action “was unnecessary and impulsive” and could result in the resurgence of Islamic State.

Turkey’s military launched a cross-border operation against Kurdish-led forces in Syria on October 9, after US troops who had been allied to the Kurds withdrew.
