Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan stated on Tuesday afternoon that "If Israel does not reconsider its support for Kurdish independence, Turkey could not take any steps" with the Jewish State, according to the Turkish Daily Sabah. He went on to say that if the Kurdish referendum is held on its own, with only Israel and the PKK (Kurdistan Workers' Party) celebrating it, then it will not be legitimate.

"Those trying to establish new states in Iraq and Syria should not be surprised when they are tossed aside by those who use them," he said.
