istanbul - Turkey has proposed to the United States that the troops of both countries be stationed together in the Syrian area of Manbij. The Kurdish YPG fighters must then retreat to the east of the Euphrates River. That is what a Turkish official said.
The proposal has been submitted to US Secretary of State Tillerson, who is visiting the Turkish capital Ankara for two days. That visit seemed a bit uncomfortable before, because Turkey thinks that America supports the Syrian-Kurdish YPG, while Turkey regards it as terrorists. In recent weeks there have been quite a few anti-American sentiments from Turkey around the world.
However, Tillerson and President Erdogan have had an 'open and productive' talk to strengthen ties, said a spokesman for the US Department of State.
