Turkey and the United States have agreed to set up a joint operation centre to coordinate a planned safe zone in northern Syria.
According to the BBC, the announcement, made today by the Turkish defense ministry – came following the third day of talks between the two NATO allies, who have been stuck in a deadlock for months over the size of the zone and who would command it.
Turkey had previously accused the US of dragging its feet.
Talks were started after Turkey said it was considering military intervention in northern Syria against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units in Syria.
The defense ministry said the joint operation centre will be based in Turkey.
