Turkey will not allow safe zone agreement to be delayed: foreign minister



Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said on Thursday his country will not allow the safe zone process it is working on with the United States to be delayed and suffer the same fate as an agreement on the Syrian town of Manbij.

The Manbij roadmap was an agreement made between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) allies last year, dictating a complete withdrawal of the Kurdish YPG militia from the town.

Ankara considers the YPG a terrorist organisation.
