Turkish President Calls On NATO To Take Stand Against U.S.

By Forces

January 16, 2018 "Information Clearing House" -  Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has urged NATO to take a stand against the United States over its plans to form a Kurdish-led border security force in Syria.

Addressing his ruling party's deputies, the Turkish president protested over the proposed formation of the 30,000 strong Kurdish-led border force.

Ankara believes Syrian Kurdish militias to be terrorists and has previously threatened to launch a military offensive against the groups.

Mr Erdogan questioned NATO’s stance on the issues saying:

“Hey NATO! You are obliged to make a stance against those who harass and violate the borders of your members.”

Tuesday comments follow Mr Erdogan’s accusation that the United States is creating an “army of terror” in Syria along the border with Turkey. He then vowed to crush the force.

Turkey’s military chief is set to discuss the issue further in Brussels.
