"I think if the Syrian people could be able to solve alone its problems, it would probably be much better", he said.

The YPG is part of an alliance with a number of ethnic Arab militias called the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Turkey has reacted angrily to the US-led coalition's stated plans to form a 30,000-strong Kurdish-led force, calling it an "army of terror" and vowing to crush it.

"We want to reassure the people and government of Turkey that the United States is committed to preventing additional security risks and protecting our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally", Pahon said. Several French jihadis had at one point risen to prominent positions in the organization, such as top propagandist Rachid Kassim, now believed to be dead after a USA airstrike.

"US disengagement from Syria would provide Iran with the opportunity to further strengthen its own position in Syria".

Speaking to reporters following a cabinet meeting, Bozdag, who is also government spokesman, said the formation of a "terror corridor and terrorist army" along Turkey's borders posed a security threat and Ankara had reached the limits of its patience.

On Monday, Erdogan said preparations for the military assault on Afrin "are complete", adding that an operation could start any moment. That followed earlier reports of a military build-up in the area.

In recent days, Turkey said it would soon launch a new operation in Afrin and sent reinforcements to the border.

However, some Arsenal supporters, and other football fans, are unsure about how the team will line-out if Aubameyang joins. "Auba has to talk to the coach and tell him whether he is ready to give everything for Borussia Dortmund ", Watzke said.

Instead, Tillerson stressed that US forces would remain in Syria for the foreseeable future as President Donald Trump and his aides implement a new strategy to stabilize Syria, where a civil war has killed as many as a half-million people and created millions of refugees since 2011.

The Afrin district has been a topic of debate recently, especially after the USA announced its intention to arm Kurdish border guards on the Syrian-Turkish border, which merited a reaction from Ankara.

Bozdag reiterated Ankara's demand that Washington cease its "inexplicable" and "unacceptable" support of the YPG. He noted that Turkey will take all necessary steps against provocative actions of the US.

The National Security Council, which is chaired by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that the state of emergency should be extended for three more months.
