Iraq vows to secure Sinjar boarder region, after Turkish warning

World War 3 Turkey Erdogan army of Islam war attack all sides latest news

The PKK - which is considered an illegal terrorist movement by the Ankara government - has been conducting an insurgency against Turkey since 1984.

The EU largely depends on Turkey to curtail the flow of migrants into Europe but has deep concerns over the state of democracy, human rights and freedoms in Turkey that have taken a turn for the worse after a 2016 failed military coup.

But according to the White House, in conversation with Macron, Trump "stressed the need to intensify cooperation with Turkey with respect to shared strategic challenges in Syria".




Turkey will take action if Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) do not withdraw immediately from Syria's Manbij region, Turkish National Security Council (MGK) said on Wednesday. Ankara considers the YPG to be a terrorist organization, but the USA, despite identifying the PKK as a terror group, does not extend the classification to the terror group's Syrian branch.

U.S. officials have repeatedly complained that Turkey's battle against the YPG is a distraction from the anti-IS fight, but Trump's remarks Tuesday suggest growing sympathy for his North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally. MEPs commented to TV broadcasters that Varna has opened a new path in relations with Turkey.

Turkey is not planning to act against Russia, the deputy premier and government spokesman said on Monday after the expulsion of dozens of Russian diplomats across Europe and in the U.S as part of a coordinated response to the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy in the United Kingdom. Moscow, in turn, has vowed response and emphasized that the expulsion of Russian diplomats wouldn't in any way help the probe into the incident.
