Trump lifts sanctions against Turkey

The president also says Turkey agreed to a "permanent" cease-fire in Syria.

By QUINT FORGEY - POLITICO

President Donald Trump said he will lift sanctions on Turkey after the country agreed to make a Syria cease-fire permanent.

Trump, however, expressed skepticism that Turkey will truly abide by a “permanent” cease-fire.

NATO is the US-led Coalition against ISIS in Syria. Troops from foreign nations are all over the Middle East under the command of the US. When you read of US airstrikes, for example, it's actually troops and military hardware from a number of nations performing different roles. The US is also the only nation to have ever invoked NATO Article 5.
