Turkey concerns about the PKK

Because of the IS crisis in Iraq some European nations decided to equip the Kurds in northern Iraq with modern weapons. This, according to the daily newspaper Der Standard, leads to serious concerns in Turkey. Turkey’s foreign minister Mevlüt Cavusoglu said last week during a NATO meeting, that the terror organization PKK (Kurdish Workers Party) would also be equipped with some weapons. The report explains that the PKK would actively participate in the fight against the IS.
