Syria war: Turkey will never accept US alliance with Kurds – Erdogan

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.

 Mr Trump also “reiterated the commitment of the United States to the security of our Nato ally Turkey and the need to work together to confront terrorism in all its forms”, the White House said in a statement issued shortly afterwards.
