ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey will not accept the creation of a new Kurdish entity inside Syria and the territorial integrity of the country must be maintained, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a joint news conference with visiting U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, Yildirim also said a joint solution must be found to end the crisis in Syria.
