Turkey calls on US to stop supporting Kurds
Turkey's Prime Minister Binali Yildirim questioned the seriousness of the US in the fight against terrorism and urged it again to drop its support for terror groups.
"The US, which we think as our NATO ally and years-long strategic partner, should pull itself together, and come to a proper decision," Yildirim said, speaking at a news conference alongside his Macedonian counterpart Zoran Zaev in Ankara.
"The US should see that fight against a terror group via another one does not comply with a state’s seriousness. It would be nice if the US could see that, if it doesn’t then we will continue to do what is necessary," Anadolu Agency cited the PM as saying.
The US has long supported the PYD/PKK as a "reliable ally" in its fight against ISIS, despite strong objections from Ankara, which has documented that the organization is the Syrian branch of the terrorist PKK.
