ArmInfo. French Ambassador to Armenia Jonathan Lacote ironically commented on a letter from US President Donald Trump to Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan after Turkey's invasion of Northern Syria.
So, Lacote, sharing on his Facebook page a photograph of Trump's letter sent to Erdogan on August 9, in particular wrote: "A letter to Trump to Erdogan. Reason for thinking to the Kurds and all those (including Europeans) who once believed that their safety was guaranteed by the United By the states. "
To note, the media got a rather odious letter from Trump to Erdogan. In it, in particular, Trump told Erdogan : "Let's work out a good deal!" Trump said. "You don't want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don't want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy - and I will." "I have worked hard to solve some of your problems. Don't let the world down. You can make a great deal," said Trump in the letter.
"History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way. It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don't happen. Don't be a tough guy. Don't be a fool!" said Trump.
It is also noteworthy that the White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham has already confirmed the authenticity of this letter.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on October 9 announced the launch of Operation Source of Peace in northern Syria against the PKK and IS. Turkish aviation attacked the city of Ras al-Ain and a number of other Syrian cities on the border of the two countries on the same day. Later it was announced the start of the ground part of the operation. On Saturday, the Turkish Ministry of Defense reported that the Turkish military and the Syrian armed opposition took control of Ras al-Ain.
To recall also that France and Germany categorically did not support this Erdogan operation. The President of France even convened a meeting of the Security Council of the country to work out decisions on further steps of the Republic.
