Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 15
By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:
The US is openly supporting the YPG (Kurdish People's Protection Units) and the PYD (Kurdish Democratic Union Party) terrorist groups in Syria, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said, the country’s media reported Jan. 15.
He said that the actions of the US don’t correspond to the spirit of the allied relations between Washington and Turkey.
He noted that Turkey will take all necessary steps against provocative actions of the US.
On Jan. 14, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement that cooperation of the US with PYD and YPG contradicts Washington’s commitments and statements made earlier, and threatens the national security of Turkey.
“We condemn this erroneous decision and we would like to remind once again that Turkey reserves the right to eliminate any kind of threats,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
