Turkish Foreign Ministry on Wednesday summoned the U.S. Embassy Charge d'Affaires Philip Kosnett in Ankara over recent developments in Syria, Anadolu Agency reported citing a diplomatic source.
The YPG is the main element in a force that Washington has assisted with training, weapons, air support and help from ground advisers in the battle against ISIS.
Turkey claims both the YPG and the PYD are a branch of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which is proscribed as a "terror" organisation by Ankara, Washington and Brussels.
But in November, Turkish officials said US President Donald Trump told them in a phone call that Washington would no longer supply arms to the YPG. The Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu also called out Russian Federation and Iran to stick to the joint accord they signed with Turkey a year ago agreeing on a "de-escalation zone" in Idlib which were set up to scale back the conflict.
Cavusoglu emphasised that in efforts to bring peace to Syria, Russia and Iran were the "guarantors" of the regime side and Turkey of the opposition. Daesh (IS) terrorists were moved from different parts of the country to Idlib under certain understandings.
The three countries had agreed previous year to establish a "de-escalation zone" in the opposition-held Idlib province and surrounding region, which borders Turkey.
However, Syrian regime forces, with Russian backing have stepped up attacks trying to regain control of the area controlled by the rebels.
The Turkish Foreign Ministry separately summoned Russian and Iranian ambassadors in Ankara on Tuesday and warned its partners for violation of Astana deal in a bid to stop the regime's attack on "moderate opposition" forces in northern province of Idlib, where "de-escalation zone" was declared by three guarantor powers.
