Johnson Urges Erdogan to End Conflict and Enter Dialogue

The New York Times 1 week ago

LONDON — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday that Britain had "grave concerns" about Turkey's military action in northern Syria and urged the president to end the conflict and enter into dialogue.

"He expressed the UK's grave concern about Turkey's military operation in northern Syria which he said could further worsen the humanitarian situation there and undermine the progress made against Daesh," a spokesman said after the telephone call between the two leaders on Saturday evening, referring to Islamic State.

"The Prime Minister was clear that the UK cannot support Turkey's military action. He urged the President to end the operation and enter into dialogue, and said the UK and international partners stand ready to support negotiations towards a ceasefire."
