US ambassador summoned to Turkey’s Foreign Ministry
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 14
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
The US Ambassador to Ankara John Bass was summoned to Turkey's Foreign Ministry with regard to a military aid of the US to the Syrian wing of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) - the Democratic Union Party (PYD), says Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.
TRT Haber quoted Davutoglu as saying Oct. 14 that Turkey doesn't differentiate between the PKK and the PYD, and in case of any threat from the PYD the Turkish military will launch a military operation against it.
The PM also stressed that Turkey considers such actions of the US as unacceptable.
Earlier, the US handed over weapons to the PYD to confront radical terrorist groups in Syria, including the "Islamic State".
Turkey has always been against the military support to PYD, as the Turkish authorities consider this organization as a terrorist group.
