1018

President Erdogan's Adviser Şeref Malkoç has said that the Incirlik Air Base could be closed fro the US military aircraft, if Washington doesn't recognised the PYD as a terrorist organisation, Yeni Şafak reports.

Malkoç said that an agreement of the US with Russia on Syria aims to curb the strengthening of Turkey.

'By not recognising PYD (the Kurdish Democratic Union Party) as a terrorist organisation the United States indirectly shows its approval of that organisation's activity,' said Malkoç.
