ANKARA - No one has the right to tell Turkey which terrorist organization it can fight, a Turkish minister said on Monday, as the NATO member faced criticism over an incursion into northern Syria which has seen clashes with Kurdish militia fighters.

"No one has the right to tell us which terrorist organization we can fight against and which one to ignore," Turkey's minister for European Union affairs, Omer Celik, told a news conference in Ankara.
