TURKEY – US RELATIONS ARE UNDER SCRUTINY
Turkey’s ongoing operation on the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection units ( YPG) caused serious problems between two countries.
The U.S has been in collaboration with the Kurdish groups YPG/PKK. The U.S presence in Syria is dependant on this groups.
In spite of Turkish ministers warning repeatedly, the U.S continues to provide arms to the YPG and hampers the advance of Turkish military against this group.
The Americans say; their presence in Syria is necessary not only to solve military issues but until there is a stable political process there that should end with the transition of power that would be acceptable to all.
Turkish foreign minister Çavuşoğlu said; relations between Turkey and the U.S will either improve or get much worse.
Turkish president Erdoğan considers the U.S to be more of an enemy than a friend.
What seems from today is that; U.S clash with Turkey for the Kurdish groups will play into the hands of Russia and Iran.
The situation in the Middle East will be even more unbalanced.
