Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Friday that U.S. President Donald Trump told his Turkish counterpart that the United States would no longer supply arms to Syrian Kurdish fighters.The YPG was a key U.S. ally against Daesh (ISIS) in Syria.Relations between NATO allies Turkey and the United States have soured recently over a number of issues, including U.S. support to Syrian Kurdish fighters.Last week, Col. Ryan Dillon, the chief spokesman for the U.S. coalition fighting Daesh in Iraq and Syria, said there has yet to be any reduction in the number of U.S. advisers working with the SDF.
