Turkey calls for US anti-IS coalition chief removal
« on: May 19, 2017, 12:12:43 AM »

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has called for the removal of Brett McGurk, the senior US envoy to the coalition against so-called "Islamic State." He said McGurk has indirectly supported Kurdish militants.

Brett McGurk - a special presidential envoy and a holdover from the former President Barack Obama's administration - has been part of the global coalition, which has 68 members, since its early days in 2014, during which time the coalition has reduced territory under the control of the so-called "Islamic State" (IS).
He is seen by Ankara as having a close working relationship with the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) militia, which are regarded as having fought effectively against IS. He visited the Kurdish group's territory in northern Syria this week.
