But he declined any direct military shipments being delivered to the PYD, arguing that the forces are clearly linked to the PKK and that may be considered as a future threat.He argued that visiting any PYD offices, one can find a portrait of jailed PKK Leader Abdullah Ocalan, which can prove the association between the two parties.
Moore also criticised Turkey for regression in press freedom. He said that the criticism is directed to Turkey as a friendly country of the UK. www.mesop.de
