Turkish President Erdogan has insisted in an interview that Turkey should still join the EU.
That is likely to change if Ankara sees through with its threat to expand the fight to Manbij, a Syrian town to the east where USA soldiers are deployed alongside Kurdish forces that took the town from IS in 2016.
As Turkey's "Operation Olive Branch" in Syria's northwestern province of Afrin continues into its second week, Erdoğan has vowed to "solve the Afrin issue". There were many Armenian families here, but now only I remain here. "Internal politics should not stand in the way of the accession process".
"I saw three-four terrorists killed outside..."
Relations between Turkey and the USA are experiencing a serious crisis because of the military support provided by Washington to YPG, which is considered by Turkey to be affiliated with the Kurdistan's Workers' Party (PKK), regarded by Ankara as a terrorist organization.

- Afrin: Ongoing Turkish military operations and the reported blockage of exits by other forces have trapped many civilians preventing them from accessing safer areas.
Ankara's military and allied rebel forces attacked Afrin in mid-January within "Operation Olive Branch", a campaign to oust the YPG from their territory in northwestern Syria.
The Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) found Syrian government forces were behind three chlorine gas attacks in 2014 and 2015.
He noted that Iran supports Syria's territorial integrity and will accept no aggression against the Syrian land.
"Well, they are wrong. You can not fight a terrorist organization with another terrorist organization".
Washington, which a year ago launched cruise missiles on a regime airfield in retaliation for a nerve agent attack in Khan Sheikhun that killed scores of people, has threatened more military action.
"The secretary and his counterparts will discuss how the 74-member global coalition can ensure an enduring defeat for ISIS in Iraq and Syria", spokeswoman Heather Nauert said.
He underlined that political approach and dialogue are the basic solutions for problems.
"The secretary's visit will emphasize United States support for the Lebanese people and the Lebanese Armed Forces", Nauert said.
The PYD/PKK terrorist group sent an estimated 500 terrorists from Syria's Hasakah and Ayn al-Arab (Kobani) areas to Afrin under the guise of "civilian solidarity visits", sources in Afrin and Hasakah reported Tuesday. The Turkish military neglected to disclose any further details on the event.
