Erdogan : Turkey Ready to Take Over Security in Syria's Manbij
Monday, 21 January 2019 11:33 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Turkey is ready to take over security in the Kurdish-controlled Syrian city of Manbij, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Sunday.

Erdogan's office says the president spoke to U.S. President Donald Trump by telephone Sunday, days after an Islamic State attack in the city killed 19 people, including three U.S. service members and an American military contractor.

Erdogan told Trump the attack was a "provocation" aimed at affecting his decision to pull U.S. forces out of Syria.

The White House did not specifically mention Erdogan's comments about Manbij other than saying the two presidents "agreed to continue to pursue a negotiated solution for northeast Syria that achieves our respective security concerns."
