YPG/PKK terror group has replaced its flag that it hanged in the northern Syrian town of Tal Abyad with a new one. reports citing Anadolu Agency.

The replacement follows Turkey's pressures on the terror group. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday stressed that Turkey will clear off terrorist organizations with the establishment of a safe zone east of Euphrates River.

On Aug. 7, Turkish and U.S. military officials agreed to set up a safe zone in northern Syria and develop a peace corridor to facilitate the movement of displaced Syrians who want to return home. They also agreed to establish a joint operations center.

The agreement also envisaged setting up necessary security measures to address Turkey's security concerns, including clearing the zone of the terrorist YPG/PKK, a group the U.S. has sometimes been allied with.

Turkey has accused the U.S. of dragging its feet and having a different concept for the safe zone.

Erdogan on Wednesday said Turkey will initiate its own plans after two weeks if no results come from Turkey-U.S. safe zone deal.
