Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to press on with an offensive in Syria until his mission to create a “safe zone” is complete.
Turkish forces launched an operation to clear Kurdish fighters from northern Syria last week, after US troops allied to them pulled out of the region.
The Turkish government views one of the main militias as a terrorist group.
Mr Erdogan has also said he will snub direct talks with the US vice-president when he arrives in Turkey.
The Turkish president said that Mike Pence and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would only speak to their counterparts and not him directly on Thursday.
“When Trump comes here, I’ll talk to him,” he said.
