Sanctions supported by the majority of Democrats and Republicans. If approved, trump will not be able to cancel new sanctions.

Most members of the house of representatives Tuesday, October 29, voted for a package of sanctions against Turkey because of the aggression in Syria. In the case of final approval, trump to cancel they will not be able, according to The Hill.

“The house of representatives on Tuesday without too much difficulty approved sanctions against Turkey in connection with its offensive against Kurdish forces in Northern Syria. The legislative initiative is adopted with the result 403 votes against 16”, – stated in the message.

The document was supported by 176 Republicans and only 15 members of trump spoke out against it.

As notes the edition, it showed “a rare bipartisan protest” against the policy of trump – and at the same time a deep rift between the position of the Congress and the country – a NATO ally.

The adoption of sanctions occurred after the head of the White house first imposed restrictions against Ankara, and next week have cancelled.

Now the document should pass the approval procedure in the Senate. Republicans in the upper chamber of Congress have repeatedly criticized trump for the withdrawal of troops from Syria and betrayal of the Kurds. However, the Republican majority leader in the Senate Mitch McConnell urged not to hurry with a vote for sanctions against Turkey.

If support for a Senate legislative initiative will exceed two-thirds of the votes, as happened in the House of representatives, the President cannot veto voted on the draft law.

Earlier it was reported that the Kurds blame Turkey for the continuation of hostilities.
