Turkey's Erdogan calls to exclude PYD, YPG from Syria truce

World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday said Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its armed wing People's Protection Units (YPG) must remain outside the scope of a ceasefire agreed between Syria's warring parties, just like ISIL and the Al-Qaeda affiliated Al-Nusra Front.

"If Daesh (ISIL) and Al-Nusra are kept outside the ceasefire, then the PYD-YPG must similarly be excluded from the ceasefire for it is a terrorist group just as they are," Erdogan told local officials in Ankara.
