Turkey to resume operation if YPG/PKK fails to withdraw, Foreign Minister says

Turkey's operation against YPG/ PKK in northern Syria will resume if YPG/PKK does not withdraw from the region, warned foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Monday.

In his opening speech at the TRT World Forum which kicked off in İstanbul, Mevlut Cavusoglu said, "We have 35 hours left. If they don't withdraw, our operation will resume. This is also what we agreed with the Americans."

Following the agreement between Turkey and the United States, Ankara agreed to halt the operation for 120 hours to allow the withdrawal of YPG/PKK members from the planned safe zone on October 17. (İLKHA)
