WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on bipartisan legislation that would punish Turkey following their incursion into northeastern Syria.
“I am pleased to have reached a bipartisan agreement with Senator Van Hollen on severe sanctions against Turkey for their invasion of Syria.
