Turkey asks US to cut ties with Kurds

TIBLISI: Turkey on Friday says America should severe ties with Kurdish fighters.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said “resorting to terrorist groups like the YPG is above all a sign of weakness”.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu is on an official visit to Georgia.

He alleged that the United States has been making conflicting statements about the Syrian Kurdish YPG fighters which, Ankara says, were working with members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

He said resorting to terrorist groups like the YPG in the fight against Deash in Syria is above all a sign of weakness.

Cavusoglu said, “Everyone must stop this mistake. In particular our ally the United States must stop this mistake immediately.”

Cavusoglu’s remarks were carried live on Turkish state broadcaster TRT Haber.
