Turkey’s Prime Minister Ahmed Davutoglu has called for the US to give his country unconditional support in the fight against Syrian Kurdish militants.

Speaking at a press conference held on Saturday, Davutoglu said that the Syrian Kurdish YPG was involved in the recent bombing in Ankara, and Washington, as the country’s ally, should back Turkey with no ifs or buts.

He also added that Turkey would tighten security across the country, especially in the capital.

The statement came a day after a phone conversation between Turkish President President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his US counterpart Barack Obama. Although Barack Obama pledged his support to Turkey’s presidency he urged to halt artillery strikes on the Turkish-Syrian border.

Washington does not consider the Syrian Kurdish YPG a terrorist organization and backs the group in the fight against Daesh in Syria.

Larry Johnson, retired CIA intelligence officer and State Department official, joined Radio Sputnik to discuss the situation on Syria’s border with Turkey, which he views as one of the most dangerous standoffs since the Cuban missile crisis.
