ISTANBUL - Every weapon obtained by the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia constitutes a threat to Turkey, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday, emphasizing Ankara's opposition to a US deal to arm the fighters against Islamic State.

Cavusoglu, who was speaking to reporters while on a visit to Montenegro, said the YPG was a terrorist organization, the same as the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), and that the United States knows this.

He said President Tayyip Erdogan would discuss these issues with President Donald Trump when he visits Washington next week. Cavusoglu's comments were carried live by state broadcaster TRT Haber.
