Turkish deputy PM recommends US to reconsider position on Syria
Baku, Azerbaijan, March 2
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
The US in Syria rely and trust the YPG (The People's Protection Units) terrorist organization, which is the Syrian wing of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), Deputy Prime Minister of Turkey Yalcin Akdogan said, the Turkish TV channel 'Kanal7' reported March 2.
Akdogan said that such a position is mistaken, and Washington should change it.
"For Turkey, there is no difference between the PKK, the YPG or organization 'The Democratic Union Party' (PYD), since they all are terrorists," he said.
US officials said before that the PYD in Syria is not a terrorist organization.
Earlier, the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the US must decide who is its ally - Turkey, or the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) in Syria.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that the US's statement that the PYD in Syria is not a terrorist organization is contrary to common sense.
