The Prime Minister of Turkey Binali Yildirim accused the current US President Barack Obama to supply weapons to Kurdish fighters.
About it reports Reuters.
According to the head of the Turkish government, the United States should not risk a strategic Alliance with Ankara for the sake of «terrorists».
Yildirim expressed hope that the new US President Donald trump will stop the supply of weapons to Kurds.
«The United States should not let its strategic partnership with Turkey was relegated to the background as a terrorist organization,» said Yildirim.

We will note, earlier the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused the Russian Federation in the provision of weapons and anti-aircraft missiles by fighters of «the Kurdistan workers ‘party» (PKK).
We will remind, in South-Eastern Turkey inhabited mainly by Kurds, armed clashes between security forces and members of the Kurdistan workers party happen regularly. The violence began July 2015, when the Kurdistan workers ‘ party violated the terms of the ceasefire, and the Turkish army in response has conducted a number of large-scale operations which have killed thousands of militants.
March 17, the Syrian Kurds have bavili about the creation of a Federal region in the territories controlled by them. The representative of the party «Democratic Union» Nawaf Khalil said that the Federal region has received the name «Roewe Northern Syria.»
Turkey is trying to prevent the formation along its South-Eastern border of the independent state of Kurdistan, which according to Ankara, will be a constant hotbed of separatism inside the country, a quarter of whose population are ethnic Kurds. For example, the Turkish troops under the auspices of the fight against ISIL, despite protests from Baghdad, has long been located in Iraqi Kurdistan.
