President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that Turkey was preparing to "eliminate" the threat from the US-backed Kurdish YPG militia in northern Syria "very soon".

"Turkey has the right to eliminate all threats against its national security... God willing, we will carry the process started with (previous offensives into Syria) to the next stage very soon," he said in a televised speech in Ankara.
