US Vice President Joe Biden said Saturday the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) is a threat to Turkey like the Islamic State, condemning the Kurdish militants as “a terror group plain and simple”.
After talks with Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in Istanbul, Biden also hailed Turkey for taking “very important steps” to counter IS jihadists and said progress in the fight would now speed up.
IS “is not the only existential threat to the people of Turkey, the PKK is equally a threat and we are aware of that.. it is a terror group plain and simple and what they continue to do is absolutely outrageous,” Biden said.
The PKK, listed as a terror group by Washington and the EU, has killed dozens of members of the Turkish security forces in attacks since a truce collapsed in July.
