(Sputnik) Ankara accused Washington on Tuesday of arming Kurdish People’s Protection Units in Syria despite assurances to the contrary.
The United States continues to supply weapons to Kurdish forces in Syria despite assurances to the contrary, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said.
“The US says it does not give weapons to the YPG [People’s Protection Units], but we know that they do. We see that the YPG and the PKK [Kurdistan Workers’ Party] are the same and arming them is wrong. We know that the US continues to give them weapons, and we have expressed our concerns with the fact,” Cavusoglu said.
The diplomat stressed that similar mechanisms for better coordination exist not only with the US, but with other countries, including Russia.
