Google is looking into reports that users in Turkey are unable to access its video-sharing site YouTube, the company said on Thursday.

“We’re seeing reports that some users are not able to access YouTube in Turkey. There is no technical issue on our side and we’re looking into the situation,” a Google Inc spokesperson said in an emailed statement.

Turkey blocked YouTube as a precaution after voice recordings purportedly of senior officials discussing a potential military operation in Syria created “a national security issue”, a source at the prime minister’s office said on Thursday.

The source said that Turkey was in talks with the video sharing platform and may lift the ban if YouTube agreed to remove the content.
