US: Turkey has 'full right to defend itself' in Syria

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo voiced unwavering support for Turkey in Syria on Thursday as Ankara seeks to thwart an Assad regime offensive in the country’s northwest, Anadolu Agency reports.

“We believe firmly that our NATO partner Turkey has the full right to defend itself against the risk that’s being created by what Assad, the Russians and the Iranians are doing inside of Syria,” Pompeo told reporters at the State Department.

“Hundreds of thousands of Syrians from all faiths, but predominantly Muslim, are being harmed by what the Assad regime, the Russians and the Iranians are doing inside of Idlib. The Turkish government has asked us for a handful of things. We’re evaluating all of those requests,” Pompeo said.
