U.S. President Donald Trump is aware of the ties between the PKK terror group and its Syrian affiliate the People's Protection Units (YPG), Trump's Special Envoy for Syria and the Global Coalition to Defeat Daesh, James Jeffery, said Wednesday.
"The president is aware of the traditional and political links between much of the SDF [Syrian Democratic Forces] Kurdish movement and the PKK and the long and very tragic history of the PKK and its efforts to try to overthrow the Turkish government," Jeffrey told the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee, referring to the umbrella group spearheaded by the YPG.
The SDF is an umbrella organization that is dominated by the YPG. The PKK is a designated terror organization in Turkey, the U.S. and the EU.
