Turkish Foreign Ministry talks disagreements between Ankara, Washington


(MENAFN- AzerNews) By

The main disagreements between Turkey and the US are related to the fact that Washington is equipping the Syrian wing of the PKK, PYD and YPG, and has not yet fulfilled Ankara's demand on extradition of the leader of FETO terrorist organization, the Turkish media quoted the country's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu as saying on January10.

Cavusoglu said that actions of the US are contrary to the partnership between the two states.

'The US claims that it is an ally of Turkey and at the same time, is actively arming the PYD and YPG, which pose a threat not only to Turkey, but also to the entire region, noted the Turkish foreign minister.

He said that Washington should understand that PYD and YPG do not represent all ethnic Kurds of Syria.

On July 15 evening, 2016, Turkish authorities said a military coup attempt took place in the country. Meanwhile, a group of servicemen announced about transition of power to them. However, the rebelling servicemen started to surrender July 16 and Turkish authorities said the coup attempt failed.

The death toll as a result of the military coup attempt stood at 250 people, and more than 2,000 people were wounded.

The Turkish authorities accuse the leader of the 'Hizmet movement, Fethullah Gulen, of involvement in an attempted military coup and demand the US to extradite him.
