Turkey urges US to stop support extremists
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan's spokesman Ibrahim Kalin lashed out at the US military after it re-tweeted a statement by a Kurdish-dominated alliance it backs in Syria saying it had no links to Kurdish militants fighting the Turkish state.
"SDF confirms that it has no affiliation or ties to PKK," US Central Command said on Twitter, re-tweeting a statement by the SDF in which it said it was not part of the PKK and wanted a strong relationship with neighbours including Turkey.
"Is this a joke or @CENTCOM has lost its senses?," Ibrahim Kalin, replied. "Do you believe anyone will buy this? The US must stop trying to legitimize a terrorist group," Anadolu Agency cited him as saying.
