Turkey Will Never Accept an Independent Kurdistan

PBS Newshour

Turkey was always going to oppose the Kurds. The government in Turkey opposed a free Kurdistan in Iraq. Syria is going to be the same. Turkey will not accept Kurdish autonomous region next door. That simply isn’t going to happen. There is bad blood there that goes back almost as long as the bad blood between Hebrews and Arabs. They are going to have to learn how to make peace with each other without interference from outside forces. Outside forces seeking to manipulate the outcomes in ways that vary from what the people living there on the ground want done.
