Statement of US Department of State outrageous for Turkey
The US Department of State made another outrageous statement for Turkey on the Kurdish “Democratic Union” party in Syria (PYD) and “People’s Defense Forces”(YPG), reports “Armenpress” citing the Kurdish "Hurriyet" newspaper.
“Our position has not changed on PYD- and YPG.
We consider the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) to be a terrorist group, but what comes to the PYD- and YPG, we have a different point of view and we have repeatedly spoken out about the issue”, said the US State Department spokesman Mark Toner.
He stressed that the Kurds in northern Syria have always fought against the terrorist group "Islamic state", therefore there is no reason not to trust them.
Earlier, the US State Department expressed its anger over the statements of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
It is known that the US ambassador to Ankara was even summoned to the Turkish Foreign Ministry for clarifications.
