Turkey on Monday deported a US citizen who fought for the Daesh terror group as the government began a new push to send back captured foreign terrorists to their home countries, a Turkish official said.
Turkey reiterates that it will surely send captured members of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group back to their countries of origin even if those countries have stripped them of their citizenship, lambasting the approach adopted by European countries on the issue.
Chairman of the Iran-Turkey joint chamber of commerce said political ties between Turkey and the United States will have no impact on Tehran-Ankara relations, meaning that even if Washington imposed or lifted sanctions on Turkey, the Iranian-Turkish trade ties will not be affected.
Turkey has vowed to “clear” Kurdish “terrorists” from the so-called safe zone single-handedly in its border area with northeastern Syria if they do not withdraw by the end of a deadline agreed with Russia this week, days after Ankara launched a cross-border offensive into the Arab country.
President Recep Tayyip Ergogan says Turkey will use its right to crush Kurdish militants from the People's Protection Units (YPG) if they do not withdraw from a so-called "safe zone" in northern Syria under a truce agreement with Russia to run joint patrols around the area.
