Politics A- A A+

The PKK likely poses more of a terror threat than the Daesh terrorist organization, U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday, Eurasia Diary reports cititng to Anadolu Agency.

"Now the PKK, which is part of the Kurds, as you know, is probably worse at terror, and more of a terrorist threat in many ways than ISIS," Trump said during a joint press conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella. He used an alternative name for Daesh.

“I’m not going to get involved in a war between Turkey and Syria, especially when, if you look at the Kurds, and again I say this with great respect, they’re no angels," he said, referring to the YPG/PKK. "If you look at PKK, take a look at PKK, ISIS respects PKK. You know why? Because they’re as tough or tougher than ISIS.”

"We're making the Kurds look like angels," he added.
