U.S. opposes any Turkish mistreatment of Kurdish allies in Syria - U.S. official

ANKARA (Reuters) - U.S. national security adviser John Bolton told his Turkish counterpart on Tuesday that the United States would oppose any mistreatment by Turkish forces of Washington’s Kurdish allies in Syria, a senior U.S. official said.

Bolton did not consider himself to have been snubbed by Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s refusal to meet him during a visit to Turkey because plans for talks between the two had not been confirmed, the official told reporters travelling with Bolton.
