It is a dead-end for Ankara, it explains, as it is unrealistic to expect Washington to sever ties with the Syrian Democratic Unity Party (PYD), which Ankara lists as a terrorist organization alongside the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which it is fighting in southeastern Turkey.
This clearly is not going to happen because the Syrian Kurdish YPG (People's Protection Units), the military wing of PYD, has proved to be the most effective force on the ground aiding the US and other Western members of the coalition against Daesh, also referred to as the Islamic State (ISIL/ISIS).
The US would not dump this group for Turkey’s sake.
Its view is echoed by The Voice of America, which also suggests that the US will not reduce its support for the Syrian Kurdish groups on the ground.
“With Turkish political leaders designating the PYD and PKK as greater threats than Daesh, analysts say relations between Ankara and Washington are becoming increasingly strained,” it says.
Those tensions have led to a redefining of the relationship between the two.
"Believe me, Ankara and Washington are not on the same page, in terms of the Middle East."
The website also notes that another of Washington’s major concern is a possible partnership between Moscow and the Syrian Kurds, if the US drops its supports for the group.
“Washington, for its part, continues to call Turkey a key partner in its fight against Islamic State. But observers say that with Washington’s priority being the defeat of Daesh, and with Syrian Kurds one of the most effective anti-Daesh forces in Syria, Turkish-US relations appear destined to remain strained for some time to come,” it finally states.
