Listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and the European Union, the PKK has waged a terror campaign against Turkey for more than 30 years, killing almost 40,000 people.

"Let us be clear, the United States will maintain a military presence in Syria focused on ensuring ISIS can not re-emerge", Tillerson said.
