Syria's SDF says it will redeploy from Turkey border under Russia deal

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said on Sunday it agreed to re-deploy away from the Syria-Turkey border, in accordance with an agreement brokered by Russia in Sochi earlier this week.

The Kurdish-led SDF said Syrian government forces will deploy along the border. It called on Russia to guarantee starting dialogue between the Syrian government and the Kurdish-led administration in northeast Syria.
