The US wants to bring the situation back to normal, the main element of this is a ceasefire.

“By ceasefire, I mean that the forces on earth stop moving. Of course, Turkish forces, but I think that we could probably talk about the Force of Democratic Syria (Kurdish US allies - ed.)”, - the representative of the administration said.

Recall, the US has already imposed sanctions against Turkey due to the offensive in Syria.
