The congressmen saw that the visit of Erdogan to the United States at this time is unsuitable.
That came two days before the suggested visit of Erdogan to America on November 13.
17 US congressmen said in a massage to Trump, “We write to express our deep concern regarding the potential visit of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Washington. President Erdogan’s decision to invade northern Syria on October 9 has had disastrous consequences for U.S. national security, has led to deep divisions in the NATO alliance, and caused a humanitarian crisis on the ground. Turkish forces have killed civilians and members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a critical U.S. partner in the fight against ISIS, and displaced over one hundred thousand people from their homes in northern and eastern Syria.
President Erdogan’s calamitous actions in Syria follow a long list of disconcerting steps under his leadership. President Erdogan has pushed Turkey closer to Vladimir Putin’s Russia purchasing the Russian S-400 air and missile defense system despite the threat that system poses to the F-35 …..”
In the conclusion, the congressmen called on the US President Donald Trump to rescind Erdogan’s visit.
