Turkish President Erdogan Agrees to Ceasefire in Syria After Meeting with Vice President Pence

Erdogan apparently took Trump’s advice from his sternly-worded letter.

Following over four hours of negotiations with Turkish President Recep Erdogan, Vice President Mike Pence announced that he had come to terms on a ceasefire in Syria with the Islamic leader.

Pence made the announcement with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo during a press conference in the Turkish capitol of Ansara. He confirmed that the deal has the full support of President Donald Trump, and will bring peace and stability to the region.

“I spoke to President Trump just a few moments ago. And I know the president is very grateful for President Erdogan’s willingness to step forward, to enact this cease fire, and to give an opportunity for a peaceful solution to this conflict that commenced one week ago,” Pence said at the press conference.

The deal was hatched a day after President Trump sent a stern letter to Erdogan imploring him to play ball in negotiations or be remembered as a “devil” throughout history.

“Let’s work out a good deal! You don’t want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don’t want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy—and I will,” Trump said in his letter to Erdogan.

“History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way. It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don’t happen. Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool!” Trump added.

The fake news jumped on a report that Erdogan trashed Trump’s letter shortly after receiving it in a likely attempt to sabotage peace negotiations before they could even get off the ground.

“President Erdogan received the letter, thoroughly rejected it and put it in the bin,” Turkish presidential sources allegedly told the BBC.

The fake news also remarked on how tense the initial encounter looked between Pence and Erdogan as the two leaders met for a photo op earlier today:

Despite the attempts by the fake news to sow division, it appears that Erdogan received the message loud and clear from the President’s letter. Trump’s use of tough rhetoric against the Muslim strong-man helped move Erdogan toward a deal. Trump believes that “millions of lives will be saved” because of this diplomatic triumph.

Trump’s decision to take troops out of harm’s way in Northern Syria shows that the U.S. does not have to spill blood in order to help solve conflicts in the Middle East.
