The only ally the United States has is the dollar, Turkey's parliament speaker said on Saturday.

"Today, the U.S. uses the dollar as a weapon," said Binali Yildirim in Geneva, while attending a consultation meeting of the Parliamentary Union of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

"The U.S., whose allies in the world grow fewer every day, hangs on a single ally, which is the dollar. Its only ally is the dollar."

Yildirim said this weapon would not help the U.S. erase the presence of Palestine.

He also decried the U.S. arming the PKK/YPG terrorist group under the pretext of fighting Daesh.

One cannot use one terrorist group to fight another, said Yildirim.

"What will you do tomorrow to wipe out that terrorist group? Will you make up another terrorist group?" he said.

Following the meeting, Yildirim met his Sudanese counterpart Ibrahim Ahmed Omer to discuss economic and cultural relations.
