MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Tuesday he was concerned by US Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's remarks suggesting that she will consider arming Kurds in Syria and Iraq if she wins presidency.
"What does arming Kurdish groups mean? Isn't the US our ally? Clinton's comments have once again proven the correctness of our worries," Yildirim said, as quoted by the Daily Sabah newspaper.
The United States has been providing military assistance to the Kurdish YPG forces, and top Pentagon officials have described the Kurdish forces as capable and successful fighters against the Islamic State terror group, outlawed in many countries around the world, including the United States and Russia.
