Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that Turkey will never permit a Kurdish state to be established close to its borders and will not watch passively as arms are sent to Kurdish groups.
Axar.az reports citing Press TV.
"We will definitely not remain silent and unresponsive to the support and arming of terror organizations next to our borders and the forming of terror islands in the region," said Erdogan on Saturday.
The US has been sending arms to Kurdish YPG troops, who are engaged in operations aimed at recapturing the Syrian city of Raqqah from Daesh.
The city of Raqqah, which lies on the northern bank of the Euphrates River, was overrun by ISIS terrorists in March 2013.
