The state Department has accused Russia of “driving a wedge” between Turkey and the United States
WASHINGTON, 23 Feb — RIA Novosti. The statements of Russia that the US are arming the Kurds, are designed to drive a wedge between the United States and Turkey, said during a regular press briefing U.S. state Department spokesman Heather Nauert.
“Such statements as these do not just help, but it’s propaganda. I think they would like to drive a wedge between the two allies in NATO, between the US and Turkey,” she said.
Previously Russia was blamed for the beginning of military operation of Turkey against the Syrian Kurds to the US, who expressed their support and supply of weapons.
