Erdogan blames the U.S. for its support of the Kurds in Syria, and the UN — for new refugees, and fear of the Russian Federation

Turkey’s President has criticized the United States for its support of Syrian Kurdish rebels, stressing that Washington is not able to understand their attempts to turn the region into a «sea of blood». The corresponding statement Recep Tayyip Erdogan made on Wednesday, 10 February 2016, according to Reuters.

Erdogan: we took in your house 3 million Syrians and Iraqis. Is the limit

«You’re on our side or on the side of the terrorist Kurdish democratic Union and the PKK,» said Erdogan, referring to American leadership.

He also criticized Washington’s refusal to recognize the «Kurdish democratic Union» a terrorist organization.

February 9, the Turkish foreign Ministry summoned the U.S. Ambassador for consultations. The reason for this was the statement of the representative of the state Department that Washington does not consider the party «the Kurdish democratic Union» a terrorist organization.

We will remind, recently the PYD is trying to move in two directions lines Eases-Jerablus in Northern Aleppo province. Thanks to air support from the coalition forces led by the United States, the Kurds forced the supporters of the terrorist organization «ISIS» to take positions in the village of Siren in the South of the province of Aleppo, opening the way to the banks of the Euphrates.

The main strategic goal of the Kurds and Russians in this case is Jerablus, located on the border with Turkey.

On 27 December, following the strike of the American aviation forces intercepted PYD «ISIS» control over tishrin dam on the Euphrates river and approached Abu has Kalkal. However, faced with strong resistance to ISIS, they were forced to reconsider the future plans of attack on the area of Mumbi and wait for air support.

In response to the warnings to the U.S. by the Syrian opposition and Turkey to support PYD from the air was discontinued, and then the command of the Kurds appealed for help to Russia.

The Turkish President also reacted sharply to the call by the UN open the borders and let in Turkey tens of thousands of refugees from Syria, reports «Interfax-Ukraine».

«What is happening in Syria has resulted in the deportation, genocide. What does UN — «let that mass of people accumulated at your door». And you (UN — edited) then what? What’s your point? Is it so simple?» — the President said.

«We took in your house 3 million Syrians and Iraqis. And you how much took? What country they were?» the President added, stressing that the UN has singled out Turkey for 455 million dollars less compared to $ 10 billion that Turkey has spent on refugees since 2011.

For its part, the Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, speaking on Wednesday in the Netherlands, also criticized those who have called Turkey to open the border for refugees.

«I believe the hypocrisy, when the representatives of some circles say Turkey’s «open border», and at the same time, can’t say Russia is «quite» the Prime Minister said.

As reported, on the eve of the office of the UN high Commissioner for refugees (UNHCR) called on the Turkish authorities to open the border for thousands of refugees fleeing Syria.

«Many people are not allow to cross the border. We ask Turkey to open the border for all civilians in Syria, fleeing danger and looking for international protection», said to journalists on Tuesday the representative of the UNHCR William Spindler in Geneva.
