Kuwait- Anti-IS coalition urged to keep focus - 'Turkey operation in Syria a distraction'

Relations between Turkey and the United States have deteriorated now to a point of either being fixed or breaking down completely, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu cautioned on Monday.

Turkey has threatened to target Manbij, another Syrian town held by the YPG, in its next move, but the United States has refused to withdraw its troops from the town as demanded by Ankara, heightening the risk of a direct confrontation between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin on Sunday held talks with US National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster focused on cooperation between the two countries in the fight against terrorism. His trip expected to be dominated by the Syrian file and US-Turkish disagreements over Washington's military support of the Kurdish units battling Turkey in northern Syria.

Erdogan has promised to sweep the militia from Turkey's southern border, a move that could put Turkish troops in confrontation with US forces on the ground in Syria.

These relations will either be fixed or they will break down completely, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said on February 12 in ıstanbul, days before U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's visit to Ankara.

Criticizing U.S. ties with the YPG/PKK terror group in Syria he said: "The U.S.is not touching ISIL members in Syria as an excuse to continue working with YPG/PKK terrorist group". Washington says Ankara has not provided enough evidence for the extradition.
