u.s. and turkey haven't been seeing eye to eye. there's a saying you dance with the ones who brought in syria the u.s. military is supporting the syrian defense forces local fighters who helped liberate the. city for meisel. just one problem the s.d.f. is led by kurds whom turkey considers a mortal enemy. once again is demanding washington abandon the s.d.f. and pull its own forces out of syria he can you produce and how that you can why are you standing around go ahead and leave who did you bring their. p.k. didn't you take in there and you are still telling us not to come the moment we will come to my marriage to deliver the land to its true owners. the us response not happening we need to stay here until the that political environment is stable
and our security here our presence here provides that level stabilization and bring security for it's just the latest in a number of issues that have driven in washington apart going back to the start of the syrian civil war in two thousand and eleven turkey became increasingly frustrated that the united states wasn't helping it achieve its goal of bringing down a side in the united states became increasingly frustrated by turkey support for radical groups what's more the u.s. is still refusing to extradite the cleric that. accused of plotting the failed two thousand and sixteen coup against her to one all this has the turkish president jockeying for closer ties with russia and attacking the u.s. as a pro enemy everywhere he goes the anti american message is resonating a recent poll found that seventy nine percent of turks hold an unfavorable view of the u.s. government just eighteen percent have
a favorable view even people to people ties are affected sixty seven percent of turks have an unfavorable view of americans roslyn jordan al-jazeera washington. so let's get more on this now correspondent. following the story for us and he's joining us live from the capital so a some three meeting jamal between to listen and at the one but we haven't heard much about it to the remaining tight lipped afterwords. elizabeth. usachev say just arrived a few minutes ago to the building behind me to meet with his counterpart smaller jurors who obviously there are going to be further discussions with regards to what's. been a sticking point there's actually a protest so the need has just come about an hour maybe the cameraman can pan to it's a group of young men who are actually approaching the the the the
where this press conference is this meeting is taking place take it off the stakes i'm going to see if you can actually show you this bear with us for a minute or so. this will probably speak true what's rosalynn jordan's report was talking about the anti-american sentiments these are going to be people who are wanting to express their anger at the u.s. the support for the kurdish militia inside syria why p.g. and the reason why they're so angry elizabeth is because the y.p. g. is not only link to another kurdish militia the p.k. k. which has been killing turks for many years but also over the past three weeks the white p.g. has launched some full rocket attacks on sarky killing at least seven citizens as well as several soldiers on the battlefield so they hold the united states squarely responsible for the support political economic but more importantly military
support that they have given to the white p.g. and i guess they've come out here to make it very clear to the section of states that regardless of the diplomacy that may be taking place on the ground the turkish people are very angry and reject the u.s. this stance. and of course jim all those trucks from. the turkish operation in a free and this is of course why the situation. and so difficult because the united states has continued to support because they have been the. strongest fighting in syria so far. as far as the united states are concerned they will say that it is the wife. of the syrian democratic forces. in the fight against the. point to the fact that the u.s. actually considers unprescribed the kurdish. as
a terrorist organization and why p.g. is just. not just because one terrorist group fights another terrorist group it doesn't make the first terrorist group and that's a turkish argument the u.s. has arguments obviously will be different in terms of being a partner on the ground in order to ensure stability but it's hard to say the u.s. has no role to play in terms of stability it doesn't border syria it has no strategic reason to consider its part of its national security well as. hundreds of kilometers of border with syria three million syrian refugees inside turkey not to mention obviously the. political ties between the two countries so the message from the foreign minister will be very clear. from this perspective is that the. words
you're already came out a few days ago i made it very clear he said that this situation resolved with with the united states things would get from bad to worse so there is a press conference that is expected whether that goes ahead over there maybe in order to ensure that maybe further doesn't happen they postpone it we're not sure yet but it's definitely going to be a very testing in trying times relations. thank you very much for that for. a child joining us live. we are going to get more on this we're joined in the studio by abraham fade out associate professor at the institute for graduate studies mr fay have always great to have you with as we do on out as they are so our correspondent. you know really talking us through just what a difficult situation this is it's a very complex situation so can the secretary of state make any progress here do you think we heard from the defense secretary james mattis who had been meeting his
texas counterpart a couple of days ago and he described it as probably the most complex security and fighting situation he's seen in over four decades of dealing with fights well i think this is we're having a very tough problem for the secretary. to sort out with turkish ally the need to ally. has very long relationships with the united states. it's all about security. support that the united states is giving to the conditionally show the white b.g. is out of line it's a national security issue to kid streets why p.g. linked closely to the. group that ins national security for turkey. you know from turkey. but for the united states i mean this issue is about long prisons in syria which is what the united states tried to achieve by you know
what's beyond isis if you devices is trying to have military force on the ground. which is part of an important part for the united states of a larger strategy to confront iran russia and the regime so all it is also vital for the united states larger security strategy is to have this military. for since the united states cannot afford to have troops on the ground american troops so they need the white b.g. to fight on their behalf i mean how is the united states going to balance its relationship trying to keep a good relationship with a nato ally turkey and its strategic security interests in the middle east including a presence and seven year this is not working out so far will there come a time when they'll have to choose are they actually choosing already by what
they're doing in the region while the relationship this good question actually the relationship between the two party is the u.s. has been actually having a very tense relationship issues you know between the two and so it's not only about the white b.g. and the turkish really you know conditionally share it's there are many issues which is again raises serious questions about the future of this relationship between the united states and turkey it's also about the turkish disappointment for not receiving the support to topple the assad regime from the united states it's also about not enough not giving. in back to turkey who's responsible or accused to be responsible for the failed coup against turkish government so that over the outcome is that turkey is not a big fan of this u.s.
administration and it's very frustrated and has very serious suspicions about you know what the united states is trying to do by giving generous military support. to the condition to leave that for turkey is is a red line and national security issue and i don't think turkey is willing to go back on this i think the all the business you can think of is that you are the united states to find some sort of a support outside at least the disputed. part of this which is where the confrontation would have been a bit of a vision that probably along those lines maybe but then is expected to give war on other issues as well or imus affair had thank you very much for that we will come back to you when we hear from rex tillerson and the turkish foreign minister which we are expected to thank you for now. well let's move on to other news now in zimbabwe and so waiting for the body of opposition leader morgan tsvangirai to
return from south africa the zimbabwe and government has said it will help pay for a state funeral for the founder of the country's main opposition movement out of metasearch reports from harare. many opposition supporters are broken hearted. they say they are struggling to accept the man who led them for nearly twenty years morgan tsvangirai is dead. i was defeated. three days notice. so we are. ready to. resist. the m.d.c. is national council has appointed nelson chamisa as acting president for twelve months which is likely means he will be the party's presidential candidate when elections take place later this year chamisa is forty years old and popular with
the youth we are just four months away from an election and we have lost a commander but i can tell you is that we do not have a crisis. the generals on the field of those who are going to be left jennings to make sure that the battle in the war again and then comes in a win this election. but two senior party officials talk with investments already did not attend thursday's party meeting there is speculation they may split the biggest opposition party because they don't want to be their boss. i want. to get me. to follow leaders in the opposition have to give me manage the transition if they want to keep the party tonight. he was the face of zimbabwe's opposition to longstanding leader robert mugabe for decades and i live long enough to see his rival resign. and facing its first election in nearly two
