Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Turkey will not leave Syria until other countries pull out.

Speaking to reporters in Ankara, he reiterated that Turkey will continue its cross-border offensive against Kurdish fighters until they have entirely left the region.

Turkey began its offensive in Syria after Trump announced an abrupt withdrawal of 1,000 US troops from northern Syria last month.
