Turkey Summons Russian, Iranian Envoys Over Syria Safe Zone Violation

Turkish courts jail 12 people for FETO links

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Thursday he should stop Syrian attacks on its opposition in northern Syria if he wants peace negotiations to succeed, Turkish presidential sources said. Turkey and the United States have been at loggerheads over Washington's policy of support for the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, which Ankara views as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) waging an insurgency in southeastern Turkey.

More than 1,200 people, including security force personnel and civilians, have lost their lives since the PKK - listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and European Union - resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July 2015.

Turkey's foreign ministry has summoned a senior U.S. diplomat to express Ankara's "discomfort" over Washington's support for Syrian Kurdish fighters, state media reported. In May 2017, Deputy Prime Minister Nurettin Canikli called the supply of weapons to the Kurdish forces "unacceptable".

The sources did not give any further detail.

In October, the YPG and their allies announced the capture of ISIL's self-declared capital of Raqqa in Syria after a four-month operation.

Turkey has been fiercely opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad during his country's six-year-old civil war but has recently been working with his allies Russian Federation and Iran for a political resolution to the conflict.
