Turkey will boycott talks seeking to find peace for Syria planned later this week in Geneva if the Syrian Kurdish group the Democratic Union Party (PYD) is invited, the Turkish foreign minister said on Tuesday.

If the PYD is invited "then of course we will boycott" the talks in Geneva, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in a live interview on the private NTV television, adding that the PYD is a "terrorist organisation" which cannot represent Syrian people.
