Erdogan says sending Peshmerga to Kobani own offer
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday he "personally made the offer" of sending Peshmerga forces to help fighters battling the Islamic State (IS) in Syria Kurdish regions, Anadolu Agency reported.

Addressing a press conference before leaving for an official visit to Latvia, Erdogan also said Turkey did not approve of delivering foreign arms to the Democratic Union Party (PYD).

Recently, the U.S. made airdrops loaded with weapons in the besieged Syrian town of Kobani to aid the PYD-led group of Kurdish fighters that are battling the IS militants there since mid-September.

"I have already said the aid you deliver to the PYD and the PKK is unacceptable as far as we are concerned," the Turkish president said.
