From an external perspectiv­e, the White House meeting between President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and U.S. President Donald Trump took place under the shadow of one of the most serious crises of recent times in Turkish-U.S. relations ...The American side already closed the file, which was still on the table for Erdogan before his arrival, by explaining that the operation to remove ISIS from Rakka will be done with the YPG, the PKK’s Syrian wing. Erdogan’s trip made it clear that Trump’s administra­tion was not going to step back, even though Turkey had demanded a reversal of their decision ...Continuing terrorist activities by the PKK will inevitably lead to a questionin­g of U.S.-YPG cooperatio­n among the Turkish public and decision makers. This may occasional­ly create new fluctuatio­ns in relations.
