ANKARA: US Senator Lindsey Graham said on Saturday he hoped President Donald Trump would slow the US withdrawal from Syria until Daesh is destroyed.
Speaking in Ankara, Graham said he believed US Chief of Staff Joseph Dunford was working on a plan with Turkey to move Kurdish YPG elements away from Turkey.
Turkey says the YPG is an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

Graham also said that the withdrawal from Syria without a plan would lead to chaos and an “Iraq on steroids.”
A prominent voice on foreign affairs in the US, Graham met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday and also held discussions with the foreign affairs and defense ministers and Turkey’s intelligence chief.
