The Turkish president said on Sunday Ankara expects U.S. to facilitate the withdrawal of YPG/PKK terrorists from northern Syria, warns Turkey may resume operation otherwise, Anadolu Agency reports.

Speaking at an anti-smoking program held in Istanbul, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said: “We expect our American allies to keep their promises this time.”

President Erdogan added that a total of 765 YPG/PKK terrorists, including seniors, were neutralized as part of the country’s counter-terrorism campaign in northern Syria, adding 1,500 square-kilometers of the territory was rescued from the terror group.

Erdogan went onto say that Turkey made the agreement with the U.S., not YPG/PKK terrorists, and some parties sought to distort this fact. 

Stressing that Turkey would enjoy YPG/PKK’s withdrawal from the safe-zone territory, Erdogan said Ankara would take the safe-zone area under protection, adding: “We studied well, all projects are ready.”
