Turkey gave 5 days to Kurdish forces to leave the safe zones in a deal given by US President Donald Trump. “It will save millions of lives,” said President Donald Trump.
The news was announced by U.S Vice president Mike pence after talks in Ankara with Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan.
“The safe zone will be primarily enforced by the Turkish Armed Forces,” a joint U.S.-Turkish statement released after the talks said.
It was also unclear if the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) would fully comply with the agreement.
SDF commander Kobani said the agreement is “just the beginning” and will not achieve Turkey’s goals.
