Meanwhile, in a statement, Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces said the US did not live up to its pledges to defuse the tension with Turkey , the Radio Pakistan reported.

On Monday, US President Donald Trump threatened, in point-blank remarks to ‘obliterate’ Turkey’s economy amid looming Syria crisis.

In a series of tweets, the tycoon-turned-president said the U.S. has done far ‘more than anyone could have ever expected, including the capture’ of 100% of the ISIS Caliphate.
