Trump told Erdogan ‘weapons won’t be supplied’ to Kurdish YPG – Turkey

Ankara said on Friday that US President Donald Trump told President Recep Tayyip Erdogan he had issued instructions that weapons should not be provided to Kurdish YPG fighters in Syria. “Our discomfort regarding the provision of weapons to the YPG was conveyed to Mr Trump once again… Trump very clearly said he had given instructions to not provide weapons to the YPG,” Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in Ankara. “We welcome the promise of not providing weapons to the YPG, and want to see it implemented practically.” Cavusoglu also said that Russia, Iran and Turkey would decide jointly who would attend Syrian peace talks. Ankara has said it would not accept the presence of YPG representatives.
