Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., is cautioning that Turkey’s President Recep Tayipp Erdogan has not agreed to stop all military operations in Syria.

His comments came in a Wednesday tweet after President Donald Trump had announced that Turkey has agreed to permanently stop fighting Kurdish forces in Syria.

Rubio wrote: “Erdogan has NOT agreed to stop all military operations in Syria.

“Russia is going to:

“--Remove Kurdish forces from east & west of current Turk controlled area, including Kurdish cities

“--Help #Turkey push all SDF forced 30km south from entire border

“--Take control of 5 oil fields”

Trump said Wednesday he will lift sanctions on Turkey unless “something happens that we are not happy with.”
