Turkish National Security Council ‘to discuss Pentagon statement on cooperation with YPG’

Presidential Spokesperson İbrahim Kalın has said Turkey’s National Security Council will discuss the Pentagon’s statement on continuing the U.S.’s cooperation with the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).

The Pentagon statement will be discussed during the National Security Council, which is due to be chaired by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Nov. 28, Kalın stated.

The statement came after a phone conversation between Erdoğan and U.S. President Donald Trump on Nov. 24 in which Trump reportedly pledged to put an end to weapons deliveries to the YPG.
