Pompeo, Pence Will Visit Turkey To Urge Ceasefire

Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are headed to Turkey, hoping to work out a ceasefire with Kurdish forces.

The delegation will meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday, hoping to end the nation’s military push in northern Syria.

The U.S. military remains committed to pulling its troops out of the region, which seemed to trigger Erdogan’s offensive. The move has caused a major backlash from both Republicans and Democrats in Congress.
