Ankara and Washington agreed to create a special zone with a length of 444 kilometers on the border with Syria, which will be controlled by Turkey.
“The agreement reached with the Americans is clear,” Turkish presidential adviser Yasin Aktay said. He said that the security zone will fully include the territory to the East of the Euphrates (there are provinces of Al-Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor). At the same time, there is no written agreement.
Earlier, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad called Ankara’s invasion of the territory of the Republic a crime. “Syria will resist aggression by all possible legal methods and means,” the politician said.
Recall, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on October 9 announced the beginning of the operation “Source of peace,” aimed at the Kurds in the North of the SAR. Ankara intends to establish a security zone along its southern border of more than 400 kilometers long and 32 kilometers wide.
