This joint resolution condemns Turkey's hostilities against Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria and expresses support for a continued U.S. military presence in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

Specifically, the joint resolution (1) calls on the U.S. government to pressure Turkey to curtail its hostilities against U.S. partner forces in Syria; (2) calls on the U.S. government and other nations to continue supporting, or to increase support for, stabilization efforts in northeastern Syria; (3) warns that a precipitous withdrawal of U.S. forces from the ongoing fight against terrorist groups in the region would be detrimental to the interests of the United States and its allies; and (4) otherwise expresses the sense of Congress regarding military, diplomatic, and humanitarian support in the region.
