Turkey “rejects” Washington’s condolences for the Istanbul attack

Turkey on Monday rejected U.S. condolences for the killing of six people in a bomb attack in Istanbul that Ankara attributed to a banned Kurdish group.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan often accuses Washington of supplying weapons to Kurdish fighters in northern Syria, which Ankara considers “terrorists”. Interior Minister Suleiman Soylu said in televised statements: “We do not accept the US embassy’s message of condolence. We reject it.”
