ANKARA- President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday Syria's Afrin must be cleansed of the Kurdish YPG militia, adding Turkey was disappointed with the United States "not keeping most of its promises" and he did not want the same experience in Afrin.

In a speech to officials from his ruling AK Party in Ankara, Erdogan said the country's military operation in Syria's Idlib was continuing as planned and considerable progress had been made thanks to a joint stance of Turkey, Russia and Iran.
