ISTANBUL May 10 Every weapon obtained by the
Syrian Kurdish YPG militia constitutes a threat to Turkey,
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday,
emphasising Ankara's opposition to a U.S. deal to arm the
fighters against Islamic State.
Cavusoglu, who was speaking to reporters while on a visit to
Montenegro, said the YPG was a terrorist organisation, the same
as the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), and that the
United States knows this.
He said President Tayyip Erdogan would discuss these issues
with President Donald Trump when he visits Washington next week.
Cavusoglu's comments were carried live by state broadcaster TRT
