 US in talks with Turkey about creating security zone in Syria

The Pentagon is in talks with Turkey about the possibility of creating a security zone in northwest Syria, despite the Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu saying earlier in the day it would not be right to discuss such a zone until trust issues between the two countries are resolved.

"Clearly we continue to talk to the Turks about a possibility of a secure zone, whatever you want to call it,"  joint staff director, Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie said.

During the same briefing, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said she had seen media reports about Turkey asking the US to move troops from Manbij, but did not know of any change in posture, Reuters reported.
