Senior US official briefs Turkey on Syria
WASHINGTON – Anadolu Agency
In a written statement, State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Sullivan also discussed the strikes with Kuwaiti, Czech, and Iraqi foreign ministers on the same day.
The U.S., U.K., and France launched airstrikes on the Bashar al-Assad regime’s alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria earlier on April 14.
The strikes came after the Assad regime was accused of carrying out a chemical attack in Syria’s Douma earlier this month, which killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had spoken with his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump over the issue ahead of the airstrikes.
