Turkey, US relations may deteriorate if Washington…

Turkey on Wednesday summoned a top United States diplomat in Ankara to protest Washington's support of a Kurdish militia in Syria, sources in the Turkish Foreign Ministry said, the latest in a long-standing disagreement between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

Earlier Ankara has summoned the Russian and Iranian ambassadors over the ceasefire violation in Idlib by the Syrian government forces.

The U.S. and the coalition have largely ignored PYD/PYG links to the PKK, which the U.S., EU, and Turkey lists as a terrorist group.

They also highlighted the important outcome of the summit meeting between His Majesty and the Turkish president in the Turkish capital Ankara last month, and the momentum it provided to increase cooperation and coordination between the two countries.

The most brutal stretch came in Weeks 2-4, when the Dolphins went to Los Angeles, New York and London for consecutive games. The Seahawks , Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans will be playing their first regular-season games in England.

Last month the YPG militia said it had fully captured Deir al-Zor's eastern countryside from Islamic State with the help of both the US-led coalition and Russian Federation.

Recent Idlib offensive of the regime, with support of Russian Federation and Iran, escalated tension between the three countries, which were able to successfully calm down clashes through the Astana process.

Turkey, which opposes Syrian President Bashar al-Assad but has been working with his allies Iran and Russian Federation to reduce the fighting in Idlib, says the latest army assault could not have taken place without Tehran and Moscow's support. Daesh (IS) terrorists were moved from different parts of the country to Idlib under certain understandings.

On Thursday, rebels launched a counter attack against government forces and their allies in Idlib province. "If you are guarantors, which you are, stop the regime".
