TURKEY SAYS US ARMING OF SYRIAN KURDISH MILITIA ‘EXTREMELY DANGEROUS’

Turkey on Tuesday said the US arming of a Kurdish militia force deemed a terror group by Ankara was ‘extremely dangerous’, and urged Washington to reverse its ‘mistake’.

“Such steps are extremely dangerous for Syria’s unity and territorial integrity,” Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said, after the United States began providing small arms to the Kurdish fighters.

“If we are looking for stability in Syria, we should row back from those mistakes,” he told a press conference with Slovenian counterpart Karl Erjavec.

The Pentagon on Tuesday said it had begun to transfer small arms and vehicles to the Kurdish elements of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish-Syrian Arab alliance fighting the Islamic State group and containing Kurdish Peoples’ Protection Units (YPG) fighters.
