AMBASSADOR CRAFT: To reaffirm what President Trump just said on his phone call, he is just, um, reaffirming his commitment to the deescalation and our, um, actually our concerns are for the humanitarian needs on the ground. This is a major catastrophe, it’s inexcusable.
QUESTION: So you…?
AMBASSADOR CRAFT: Thank you.
QUESTION: So, do you think Turkey should continue its military campaign?
AMBASSADOR CRAFT: I’m going to re-affirm what the President said on his call. He supports Turkey’s efforts to deescalate the situation on the ground. Thanks.
