Turkey says will not be ‘intimidated’ by Trump threats

Turkey on Monday said it would not be intimidated by threats after US President Donald Trump warned of devastating economic consequences over any attack on Kurdish forces, but indicated Ankara was open to the idea of a security zone in Syria.

“We have said repeatedly we are not scared of and will not be intimidated by any threats,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said, adding: “Economic threats against Turkey will get nowhere.”

He said Turkey was “not against” a “security zone” in Syria, during a press conference in Ankara with his Luxembourg counterpart Jean Asselborn.
