PKK figure comments on Erdogan-Trump meeting, calls for end to ‘dirty policy’

“The USA says to Turkey, to Erdogan, ‘if you accept to do this and that according to my wishes, I will give you this much support against the PKK.’ This is the approach adopted by the USA in this issue. Erdogan on the other hand, is trying to obtain concessions relating to the PKK by keeping the PYD, the YPG and Fethullah (Gulen, a Turkish cleric residing in the USA whose extradition is demanded by Turkey) high up on its agenda. Turkey is trying to obtain US support for the dissolution of the PKK by offering compromises on other issues. This is what the essence of this meeting was about.”

Stressing that most commentators had focused on the Raqqa operation and the US administration’s decision to carry on the operation with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Karasu added, “it was impossible that the USA take a stance against the SDF or PYD after this meeting, it was impossible that they change their decision on carrying out joint operations in Syria. As a matter of fact this did not happen. But it would be a mistake to say that this was the only result of the meeting.”
