Turkey expects concrete steps from U.S. on safe zone in Syria

Turkey expects concrete steps from the U.S. for its security regarding the situation of the PKK terrorist group's Syrian offshoot People's Protection Units (YPG), Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said.

He reiterated that a planned safe zone near the Syria-Turkey border needed to be controlled by Turkey, and wanted it to be 32-kilometers deep into Syria's territory, Daily Sabah reported.

Turkey is also trying to convince the U.S. to allow refiner Tüpraş, the country's biggest oil importer, to continue buying crude oil from Iran free of sanctions, the spokesman said.
