Turkey's Erdogan lambasts US over support for Syrian Kurds

Syrian Kurds demonstrate against the curfew imposed by the Turkish army in the town of Cizre, on February 8, 2016, in the northeastern Syrian city of QamishliTurkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan bitterly attacked ally the United States over its support for Syrian Kurdish groups, as they seized an airport near Aleppo and sought to build ties with Russia. In an impassioned and sometimes angry address, Erdogan accused Washington of creating a “pool of blood” in the region by working with Kurdish groups Ankara lists as terror organisations. The US has been supporting Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its People’s Protection Units (YPG) militia in their fight against Islamists in Syria, but Turkey considers them to be terror groups allied to Kurdish rebels on its soil.
