Deputy Prime Minister of Turkey Nurettin Canikli announced that Turkey hopes the U.S. will end to support the Kurdish YPG fighters in Syria.

Ankara views the YPG as the Syrian extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), considered a terrorist group by the United States, Turkey and Europe. U.S. President Donald Trump has approved supplying arms to the YPG to support their fight against ISIS in Syria.
“We cannot accept the presence of terrorist organizations that would threaten the future of the Turkish state… We hope the US administration will put a stop to this wrong and turn back from it. Such a policy will not be beneficial, you can’t be in the same sack as terrorist organizations,” Canikli said in an interview.
