Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed anger over a U.S. official's visit to a Kurdish militia group controlling the Syrian town of Kobane, urging Washington to choose between Turkey and the "terrorists" there.Ankara considers the PYD and YPG to be affiliates of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has waged an armed insurgency in Turkey, while Syria's opposition accuses them of being too close to the regime in Damascus.The PKK is blacklisted as a terrorist organisation by Turkey and much of the international community.
