Ready for Syria operation ahead of Trump talks, says Turkey’s Erdogan

Ankara: Turkey’s preparations on the border with Syria ahead of a possible operation have been completed, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Saturday ahead of talks with US counterpart Donald Trump. “Our preparations along the border have been completed,” Erdogan told reporters in Istanbul ahead of his flight to New York for the United Nations General Assembly. He has given the US until the end of the month for concrete results on the development of a “safe zone” on Turkey’s border, after which Turkey will go in. Trump and Erdogan will discuss the matter when the Turkish leader is in New York. Although earlier this month, the NATO allies launched joint patrols in northeastern Syria, Turkish officials have described the US actions as “cosmetic” and warned against delays. (AFP)
