The Syrian government on Thursday rejected a US-Turkey deal to establish a buffer zone in northern Syria, blaming Kurds in the north for the proposal, Foreign Ministry source stated.
Axar.az reports citing SANA that the claims come one day after the US and Turkey announced they have reached an agreement to establish a joint operations center to create a safe zone in northern Syria.
Syria categorically and blatantly rejects the agreement between the American and Turkish occupiers on the establishment of a so-called safe zone” in northern Syria, a source from the Syrian Foreign Ministry said.
Ankara considers the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) as the Syrian branch of Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), a Kurdish insurgency group Turkey, the EU, and the US designates as a “terrorist organization.”
Officials from the Syrian Kurdish administration are yet to publicly comment on the deal.
