Turkey expects full support from its allies in its war against terrorism, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said here Monday.

Davutoglu told reporters in Istanbul before embarking on visits to Syria and Afghanistan, reported private CNN Turk channel.

The topic of discussion was the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has been engaging in a separatist war with Turkey for nearly three decades.

"When we look at the terrorist PKK's activities, they get international financial support with illegal methods," Davutoglu said, adding they were working with all involved to stop this problem.

"We are constantly warning those involved," he added.

He said there was still a lot of work to be done in addressing the issue, even though there had been an increase in cooperation in recent months.

"We expect full and immediate support from our allies in the struggle against terrorism," he said.
