Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has lashed out at the US over its support for Syria’s main Kurdish group.

According to the BBC, President Erdogan accused Washington of creating a “sea of blood” by failing to recognize as terrorists members of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its armed wing which the US is relying on to battle the Islamic State inside Syria.

Mr. Erdogan’s comments come as he faces pressure to allow in 30,000 Syrians stranded on the border with Turkey.

The refugees have fled an offensive by Syrian government forces and allied militias on rebel-held areas around the northern city of Aleppo.
