October 10, 2019

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says his country did not give a "green light" to Turkey for its offensive in northern Syria.

In an interview with US Broadcaster PBS, he defended President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw US troops from the border area of Syria, which sparked an outcry at home and abroad.

Pompeo said Turkey had a legitimate security concern and a terrorist threat to their south.
