Turkey's Erdogan Calls Arming Of Kurdish YPG 'Unacceptable' In Meeting With Trump

17 May 2017

Trump for his part did not directly address the plans, instead reinforcing Washington's commitment to fighting IS and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) alongside Ankara.

Speaking alongside Erdogan at the White House, Trump said Turkey and the United States would act together against extremist groups including the Islamic State.

The biggest dispute between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies in recent days has been the US plans to arm Kurdish Syrian militants to help them fight IS.

Turkey has been a partner in the US -led coalition against Islamic State forces. The U.S. alliance with Turkey has proven pivotal in the battle against Islamic State in Syria, providing the coalition with access to Turkey's Incirlik air base to wage strikes against the militants.

TURKEY'S Kemalist opposition urged the United States to press Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on democracy yesterday after the latest media arrest.

Some ransomeware variants display intimidating messages such as: "Your computer was used to visit websites with illegal content". The Friday's cyber attack hit roughly 200,000 computers in at least 150 countries ( according to Europol) around the globe.

Shocking footage has emerged showing violent clashes between people protesting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his suited bodyguards and supporters in Washington DC. "We also appreciate Turkey's leadership in seeking an end to the horrific killing in Syria", he added.

The US sees the YPG as distinct from the PKK and also as a key partner in the fight against so-called Islamic State (IS).

Trump and Erdogan both emphasized the positive.

U.S. officials disclosed on May 9 Mr Trump's approval of plans to supply the YPG as it advances toward the so-called Islamic State's stronghold of Raqqa in Syria.

The White House said after the meeting that Trump raised the incarceration of Pastor Andrew Brunson, an American pastor detained since last October, and asked that the Turkish government expeditiously return him to the United States.

Shortly after Erdogan arrived in Washington, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim told his party members that US cooperation with Syrian Kurds "is not something acceptable" for Turkey.

Flint Arthur told CNN that Erdogan backers had broken the police lines to attack his fellow protestors.

Gulen, in an opinion piece published Tuesday in the Washington Post, not only denied a role in the coup, he said Erdogan was using it as an excuse to imprison, fire and otherwise ruin the lives of thousands of Turks connected to Hizmet, "the peaceful humanitarian movement with which I am associated".

However, Abdulkarim Omer, the head of foreign relations for Cezire Canton in Syria's Kurdish region-Rojava, told ARA News that it is unlikely that the United States will change its policy on Raqqa-where Kurds lead a major military operation to eliminate ISIS. Kalin did not specify exactly what steps they discussed.
