Ankara, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has indicated after talks in Washington that he will never accept a US alliance with Kurdish forces fighting in Syria.
“There is no place for terrorist organisations in the future of our region,” he said at a joint news conference with President Donald Trump.
He was referring to the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, following a US decision earlier this month to arm the group.
Despite this, the two leaders pledged to strengthen bilateral relations.
“We’ve had a great relationship and we will make it even better,” President Trump said.
