Relations between Washington and Ankara have been highly strained, in part due to USA support for the the People's Protection Units (YPG) in Syria.

Declaring bilateral ties at a "critical point", Cavusoglu said: "We will either fix the ties or they will break down completely".

As for the reason for the armed group's mobilisation to Afrin, he said is because they believe "their fellow Kurds" in Afrin to be under attack, referring to Turkey's Operation Olive Branch in the northwestern Syrian province to clear PYD/PKK elements from there. The missing trust needs to be restored.

He was speaking, on Monday, a day after a visit to Turkey by U.S. National Security Advisor HR McMaster and ahead of a stop in Ankara this week by U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson.

The White House said on Sunday that a senior advisor of US President Donald Trump visited Turkey on February 10 and 11 amid escalating tensions of the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over Turkey's attack in Afrin, Syria.

Ankara has also threatened to expand its offensive to the YPG-held town of Manbij, east of Afrin, where the US has a military presence, setting the scene for a potential showdown between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies that back different sides in Syria's complex and multi-layered civil war.
