No tolerance for US stalling on Syria safe zone: Turkey

Erdogan was quoted in a CNN Turk report published on Thursday as saying Ankara won’t accept foot-dragging on the plan, comparing it to an earlier deal with Washington to remove the Kurdish YPG fighters from the northern Syrian city of Manbij, which Turkey had accused the US of delaying.

“We will never tolerate a delay like we saw in Manbij. The process must advance rapidly,” Erdogan said.
