      Turkey will go ahead with an offensive against Syrian Kurdish fighters in Syria if the United Statesdelays the withdrawal of its troops from the war-torn country, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has said.

      “If the [withdrawal] is put off with ridiculous excuses like Turks are massacring Kurds, which do not reflect the reality, we will implement this decision,” he told NTV channel on Thursday.

      Cavusoglu said a military operation against the US-allied Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), which it has pledged to carry out in northeastern Syria, is not dependent on the pullout of US troops.

      “We are determined on the field and at the table … We will decide on its timing and we will not receive permission from anyone.”
