Trump says Turkish ceasefire in Syria ’permanent’, and he will lift sanctions

President Donald Trump announced Wednesday he is lifting sanctions on Turkey after the country agreed to a permanent ceasefire against Kurdish forces. The US president said that a ’small number’ of US troops would remain in Syria’s oilfields. Just a week ago, Trump had announced a series of sanctions on Ankara after Turkey launched its attack on Kurdish-led forces in north-eastern Syria.
