Turkey warns U.S. to end support for YPG

Stoltenberg recalled his phone conversation with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan last week and urged for "direct contacts" between Turkey and the United States to find the best way to address the challenges in northern Syria.

Logoglu felt that Trump, in a bid to maintain the USA influence, is making a strategic mistake in Syria by putting all his eggs in the YPG basket rather than working out an agreement with Turkey.

"He urged Turkey to deescalate, limit its military actions, and avoid civilian casualties and increases to displaced persons and refugees", it said.

In this episode of Jahan Nama, host Shogufa Danish discusses the topic with global relations affairs analyst Mustafa Mustafa.

He noted that no one can stop the Turkish army.

On Jan. 20, the Turkish Armed Forces, together with the Free Syrian Army, launched the Operation Olive Branch in Afrin, Syria.

During the same briefing, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said she had seen media reports about Turkey asking the United States to move troops from Manbij, but did not know of any change in posture.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu ruled out a proposal he said was made by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to create a 30-kilometer security zone inside Syria to protect Turkey's southern border. He said Turkey will never accept this.

Turkish troops' clash with the proxy forces the United States is using against IS would have a bad outcome, especially if such a clash would take place in areas where US advisors are present, Bossert was quoted as saying.

Turkey is calling for the extradition of USA -based Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen, who Ankara blames for a failed coup in 2016.

But Tillerson later denied he made such proposal.

The United States is reacting to Ankara's cooperation with Moscow in Syria, where it is struggling for influence with Russian Federation, he said.

The United States has supported the YPG militia in the war against Islamic State.
