‘NATO fights terror around world, lacks same stance against PKK’

NATO members have fought relentlessly against terrorist organizations in many parts of the world, but unfortunately, they have not shown the same resolve in taking on the PKK terrorist group and its Syrian wing, the YPG, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said Friday.

"Turkey has repeatedly called on its allies to fight together against the YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorist organizations in northern Syria, which threaten our national security and regional stability," he said.
