Published: Updated:

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg agreed Turkey’s military operation against Kurdish forces in northeast Syria needed to end, a spokeswoman for Johnson’s office said.

“The Prime Minister and Secretary-General both expressed their deep concern at the situation in northern Syria,” the spokeswoman said in a statement after the pair met in London on Tuesday.

“Both leaders stressed the value of Turkey as a NATO ally and recognized the role they have played in supporting refugees from the Syrian conflict,” she added. “But they were clear that the current Turkish operation needed to end.”
