US is aware of tensions in Shingal and PKK influence: spokesman
The Spokesman to US Department of State said his country is aware of tensions in the Iraqi Kurdish northern city of Shingal and the influence of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in the region.

Tensions have increased between the ruling Kurdistan Democratic Party and the PKK over the latter’s presence in the city. Turkey too has warned about the presence of the PKK in the city and the U.S. has demanded the withdrawal of the PKK from Shingal.

We are well aware about its presence and influence in Shingal, John Kirby told reporters about the PKK presence in Shingal.

He went on to add that the PKK is a foreign terrorist organization, stressing that Washington is aware of the PKK threats against the region and Turkey and will continue our support to Turkey anti-terror attempts.
