U.S.'s Pompeo says Trump's Turkey threat won't alter Syria troop withdrawal

RIYADH - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday that President Donald Trump's threat to devastate Turkey economically should it attack a Washington-backed Kurdish militia in Syria would not change plans to withdraw troops from that country.
The top US diplomat told reporters in Riyadh that he assumed Trump's comments on Twitter were referring to sanctions, adding: "You're going to have to ask him about that."
Pompeo said he had told Saudi Arabia's king and crown prince during morning meetings that "every single person who has responsibility for the murder of (journalist Jamal) Khashoggi needs to be held accountable."
