Arms given to ‘terrorists’ but not to Turkey Erdogan slams NATO

Arms given to ‘terrorists’ but not to Turkey Erdogan slams NATO
Recep Tayyip Erdogan

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused NATO allies of supporting "terrorists" with thousands of truckloads of weapons while ignoring Turkey's request to buy their arms. "What kind of NATO alliance is this?" Erdogan said on Monday during an election campaign rally in southwestern Turkey's Burdur region.

"You give terrorists around 23,000 truckloads of weapons and tools through Iraq, but when we asked, you won't even sell them to us," he added.  "We have a 911-kilometre border [with Syria]. We're under threat at any moment." Erdogan did not specify which nations were allegedly supplying arms through Iraq. Turkey also expects Syria's Manbij region to be rid of "terrorists" and left to locals as soon as possible, said the Turkish leader.

Manbij has been held by the United States-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a militia spearheaded by the Kurdish People's Protection Unit (YPG), since 2016.
