The US Senate and House of Representatives issued a written statement on Turkey’s possible operation in Syria.

The joint written statement by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez, ranking member James Risch, House Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Gregory Meeks and ranking member Michael McMaul is as follows:

“We are deeply concerned about Turkey’s continued threats to launch a new military operation in northern Syria. Previous Turkish operations have disrupted U.S. and partner forces’ operations against ISIS and exacerbated Syria’s dire humanitarian crisis. Another Turkish operation would have the same disastrous consequences, including driving countless vulnerable Syrians away.
