Turkey resolves to never allow 'terror state' on border
[AA.TR] The National Security Council meeting in Ankara on Monday resolved that
The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire....
would never allow a terrorist state to be established on its border.
According to a statement issued after the council’s meeting at the presidential complex in the capital, the meeting highlighted that the PKK/PYD terror group cannot be legalized, even if it was fighting against another terrorist group ISIS.
Ankara views the PYD and its arm the YPG as the Syrian branches of the PKK terror group.
Arms sent by certain allied countries to the PYD (in northern Iraq and Syria) have been delivered to PKK terrorist organization, which vindicates Turkey's rightful objection to the arming of Syrian terror affiliate, the statement said.
Turkey has repeatedly objected to the supply of weapons to terror groups on the pretext of an operation to oust ISIS from Syria's northern city of Raqqah.
there's more than one way to skin a cat...
the U.S. considers the PKK/PYD as a "reliable partner" on the ground in Syria and continues to support them in the field.
