U.S. delegation arrives in Turkey's Sanliurfa
A U.S. delegation has arrived in Turkey’s province of Sanliurfa to start work on the establishment of a joint operations center to coordinate a planned safe zone in neighboring Syria, Turkish authorities said.
Work to establish the center has begun and it is expected to become active in coming days, the Turkish Defence Ministry said on Twitter.
"Within this context, a six-person U.S. delegation has arrived in Sanliurfa with the purpose of preliminary preparation," it said.
The two NATO allies agreed last week to establish the center that would manage the zone in northern Syria though no agreement has been announced on key details of the zone, including the size of the area in question and the command structure of joint patrols that would be conducted there, Reuters recalled.
