ANKARA (Reuters) - The U.S. charges d'affaires in Ankara has been summoned to the Turkish foreign ministry over recent developments in Syria, sources in the Turkish foreign ministry said on Wednesday.

They gave no details of Ankara's concerns. Turkey and the United States have been at loggerheads over Washington's policy of support for the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, which Ankara views as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) waging an insurgency in southeastern Turkey.
