The United States will arm the Kurds in Syria, a decision announced on 9 May. Turkey reacted indignantly. On May 11, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan urged Washington to “come back to his footsteps”, but more or less at the same time the US military confirmed that “very soon” will begin delivering mortars, heavy machine guns, light weapons and vehicles armored. For Turkey, the emergence of autonomous Syrian Kurdistan is therefore a huge problem. Turkey, in fact, can not do anything to prevent it. Ankara can not approach Russia more than it has already done, because it can not break with the Americans at a time when its relations with the European Union are at the lowest level.
Former President of Yemen, the president of General People’s Congress party (GPC), Ali Abdullah Saleh, said that those who were trying to split GCP national alliance with Ansarullah are only the aggression infiltrators. In an article published on his official Facebook, Saleh said that those who were trying to split the national alliance and cast doubt on the credibility of this alliance between the GPC and Ansarullah work in behalf of the aggression and their schemes aiming to harm the nation’s unity, the revolution, the republic. “The higher public interest of the nation requires doubling national efforts to confront the aggression and preserve the nation’s unity, security and stability,” Saleh stressed.
