The US’ attitude toward Turkey is not in line with the spirit of alliance, Turkey’s foreign minister said on Thursday.

“The US’ cooperation with the PKK/PYD/YPG (terror group), FETO’s presence in the US, and its stance on the S-400 sanctions are not in line with the spirit of alliance,” Mevlut Cavusoglu told fellow lawmakers.


Cavusoglu said Ankara and Washington will form a working group to resolve all outstanding issues between the NATO allies.

“We previously made an offer (for a working group) to the US, but this time the offer has come from the US, from Biden,” he said.

Biden has shown a “positive attitude” toward Turkey’s purchase and modernization of F-16 fighter jets, Erdoğan also said during a press conference at the G-20 summit in Rome on Sunday.

The White House said that Biden underscored his desire to maintain constructive relations with Turkey during the meeting with Erdoğan.

“President Biden reaffirmed our defense partnership and Turkey’s importance as a NATO ally, but noted U.S. concerns over Turkey’s possession of the Russian S-400 missile system,” the White House said in a statement after the meeting.
