Unfortunately, U.S. foreign policy is being shaped by narrow-minded military officers, and this is the reason behind Ankara and Washington's frozen relations
The U.S.'s continuous support for the People's Protection Units (YPG) in northern Syria has elicited political criticism and moral outrage in Turkey.
Nowadays, there is heavy diplomatic traffic between Turkey and the United States. Following U.S. National Security Adviser Gen. H.R. McMaster's visit to Istanbul over the weekend, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is expected to be in the Turkish capital Ankara on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Turkish and American defense ministers will reportedly hold talks in Brussels later this week.
The anti-Turkish lobby in the U.S. directs the Trump administration to determine its YPG policy, which is why relations between Ankara and Washington cannot stay on the right track
