ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey and the United States agreed on a method and timetable for the withdrawal of Kurdish militants from Syria’s Manbij, government spokesman Bekir Bozdag said on Monday.
Bozdag made the comments after a cabinet meeting following the meeting between Turkey’s foreign minister and his U.S. counterpart. He also said Turkey has the right to carry out operations against Kurdish militants in northern Iraq’s Qandil region any time it deems necessary.
