TRT- Turkish foreign minister says Ankara attaches importance to relations with France.
Turkey’s foreign minister on Wednesday called on France to “review its stance” on the PYD/YPG — Syrian branch of the PKK terrorist group.
“On the #Syria issue, France must review its stance regarding PYD/YPG, offshoot of the terrorist organization PKK in Syria,” Mevlut Çavuşoğlu wrote on Twitter, following a meeting with Charles Fries, French ambassador in Ankara, Turkey’s capital.
Çavuşoğlu also said that Turkey attaches importance to relations with France.
“[We are] Pleased to see commercialeconomic relations expand,” he said.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU — has been responsible for the death of some 40,000 people, including women and children. The PYD/YPG is its Syrian branch.
