Continued US arms and logistical support for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a branch of the PKK In Syria, provokes a Turkish reaction. Ibrahim Kalin, a spokesman for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, tweeted that the United States continues to support the PKK-affiliated group. He criticized and called for an end to this support.
US support for the PKK / PKK and inaction towards Fethullah Gulen are two issues that poison Turkey’s relations with the United States. Politicians in Washington and others should know these two issues are very serious for Turkey.
