ANKARA (Reuters) - A decision by the United States to continue to fund the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia will affect Turkey's decisions, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday, ahead of a visit this week by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Erdogan made the comment in a speech to members of his ruling AK Party in parliament.
