ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey’s Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has complained to the U.S. ambassador about reports of possible weapons aid to Syrian Kurdish forces which are affiliated with Turkey’s Kurdish rebels.
Davutoglu said Wednesday there was a risk of such weapons falling into the hands of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, and being used against Turkey.
A local Kurdish official said the U.S. had provided 120 tons of weapons and ammunition to the Kurdish militia in Syria fighting the Islamic State group. The U.S. military did not confirm delivery of weapons or ammunition to Syrian Kurds in the last week.
Davutoglu said: “Turkey cannot accept any kind of cooperation with terror organizations that have declared war against Turkey.”
