Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday that he wants to discuss the U.S. decision to arm the People's Protection Units (YPG) terrorists with heavy weaponry with President Donald Trump in his upcoming trip to Washington before departing to Beijing from Ankara's Esenboga airport. reports citing Daily Sabah.

Speaking to journalists in a press conference before his trips to China and the U.S., President Erdogan said the discussion will be more sensitive, taking into consideration that the U.S. is still undergoing a changing phase following its elections.

Erdogan said that Turkey does not want to see the U.S. side with the YPG terror group, and added that a terror group cannot be wiped off with another terror group.

President Erdogan also said that he will discuss the extradition of Fetullah Gülen, leader of the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) and mastermind of the failed July 15 coup attempt, adding that the U.S. should not become a hatching ground for FETÖ.

A week prior to President Erdogan's visit to the U.S., holdovers of the Barack Obama administration in the U.S. government rushed President Donald Trump to directly arm the PKK terrorist organization's Syrian affiliate, the YPG, fearing that Erdogan could personally convince Trump otherwise.
