Erdogan: Turkey to Attack US-Backed Syrian Kurds in Coming Days
The YPG is the backbone of a Syrian force that drove the Islamic State group from much of northern and eastern Syria with the help of USA -led airstrikes.
In a new emailed statement on Monday, it said it aimed to create the 30,000-strong force "over the next several years".
Erdogan's spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said that Washington "is taking worrying steps to legitimise this organisation and make it lasting in the region".
"A comprehensive military operation could prove to be a strategical security trap for Turkey", said Has, reminding that the Russian army presence in Syria is the reason why President Bashar al-Assad is still in power. "What we have to do is nip this terror army in the bud", Erdogan said in a televised speech outside Ankara.
In an email to Reuters, the coalition's Public Affairs Office confirmed details of the new force reported by The Defense Post.
The US-led coalition says it does not discuss the location of its forces.
The new upsurge of tensions between Ankara and Washington comes as Erdogan repeatedly threatens that Turkey could launch a cross-border operation to oust the YPG from the Kurdish-held town of Afrin in northern Syria.
Turkey has long protested the US support for the PKK/PYD terror group, while Washington has brushed off these criticisms, saying it needs the terror group's help to fight against Daesh in Syria.
Meanwhile, the ministry warned that it will regard any Syrian citizen taking part in this USA -backed militia as a "traitor" and will be dealt with accordingly.
Syria's Kurdish militants have emerged as one of the main winners of Syria's six-year war, capturing swaths of land in the country's north in which they are now trying to entrench their autonomy.
