Erdogan tells US to end 'deception' on Syria

Erdogan tells US to end 'deception' on SyriaPresident Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday told the US to stop “deceiving” Turkey and start cooperation, after Washington said it was concerned by the Turkish-led offensive on the Syrian city of Afrin. Erdogan’s typically abrasive comments came after the US State Department reacted to the capture by Turkish forces of Afrin from Kurdish militia by sounding alarm over the fate of civilians and looting. “If we are strategic partners, you must respect us and you must work with us,” Erdogan told Turkey’s NATO ally during a speech to ruling party lawmakers in parliament.
