No: 384, 13 December 2017, Press Release Regarding Us National Security Advisor H.r. Mcmaster’s Remarks On Our Country And Government

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 13.12.2017

It has been learned with regret that the U.S National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster made remarks targeting our country and government during his speech at the meeting organised by a think tank yesterday (12 December) in Washington D.C.

The allegations made by Mr. McMaster, who is best placed to judge Turkey's ceaseless combat against terrorism and radicalism in all its forms and manifestations, are astonishing, baseless and unacceptable.

We expect the United States, which we continue to recognize as our friend and ally, to display the same stance to our country, to cease all forms of cooperation with terrorist groups such as YPG and provide more concrete and effective support in our ongoing determined fight against terrorism and radicalism in line with our traditional ties of alliance and international legitimacy.
