BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 P.M.) – Turkey rejects the U.S. military’s plan to train between 35,000-40,000 locals in northern Syria, the spokesperson for the Justice and Development Party (AKP), Omer Celik, said on Tuesday, as reported by the Anadolu News Agency.

According to Celik, Turkey is concerned over the statements of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. Army General Joseph Dunford in Washington last week.

“We do not see them as well-intentioned approaches.”

He added that the move will be seen by Turkey as lending fresh support to terror elements in Syria.

Last week, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of the U.S. Army Gen. Joseph Dunford announced that the US-led coalition is planning to train 35,000 to 40,000 locals to stabilize the northeastern part of Syria by defeating Daesh.

The US do not need the Sultan’s permission to train Kurdish troops.

p.s. Sorry to say the US do not give a dam for Syrian objections either.
