Ankara, May 11: Turkey is the only state which shares its wide border with ISIS-hit Syria. In such a position, Turkey plays a major role for United States of America which is trying all its might to evaporate any signs of Islamic terrorism in the world. However, recently, Turkey has lashed out at Washington’s plan to provide arms and ammunitions to the Kurdish rebels fighting against Syria.
For many of you who don’t know about Kurds, Kurds are one of the indigenous people of the Mesopotamian plains and mostly stay in the south-eastern Turkey, north-eastern Syria, northern Iraq, north-western Iran and south-western Armenia. They are Sunni Muslims majorly and have no specific dialect. They are fighting against ISIS.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump had authorized arming the Kurdish People’s Protection Units. The Pentagon has announced that it will give away necessary provisions to aid the only group that it sees fit enough to retake the Syrian city of terror. The YPG is part of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a coalition of rebel fighters that Washington considers its main ally in the country. But Ankara sees the YPG as a terrorist organization threatening Turkish sovereignty.
Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavosoglu has warned the U.S government that YPG is an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which both Turkey and U.S consider as a terrorist organization.
Hence, the Turkey Prime Minister Binali Yildrim has asked the US government to reverse the law
