Turkey cannot fight the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) at the expense of the regional fight to defeat ISIS, acting US Department of State spokesperson Mark Toner said in a briefing.

“We’re also cognizant of the threat that the PKK poses to Turkey but again the point we made to Turkey and I’m making now is that Turkey cannot pursue that fight at the expense of our common fight against the terrorists that threaten us all,” Toner told reporters.

 
“We are very concerned, deeply concerned that Turkey conducted airstrikes earlier today in Northern Syria as well as Northern Iraq without proper coordination either with the United States or the broader coalition to defeat ISIS,” Toner added.
