Turkey key country in Syria talks, says FM Cavusoglu

The Turkish patrols are part of a deal to reduce tensions around Manbij, where USA troops are also present, but Syria's government sees them as an invasion.

Ibrahim Alhaji, who served a decade as an undersecretary at Syria's Justice Ministry after 12 years as a judge and prosecutor in Manbij, took refuge in Turkey after Daesh occupied Manbij.

In a first step on Monday, Turkish armoured vehicles began patrolling around Manbij, according to Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency.

The US Senate passed a bill on Monday that could be used to block or slow the transfer of the F35 advanced warplane to Turkey, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally that has an increasingly strained relationship with Washington.

Our culture and religion are common.

The Manbij roadmap was announced after a meeting in Washington between Cavusoglu and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Though he didn't offer specifics, he said the agreement with the USA would see Turkish forces getting closer and closer to Manbij step-by-step, ultimately ending up with Turkish troops inside the city.

Turkey claims the YPG has ties to the banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), and thus considers the group "terrorists".

Joint US-Turkish patrols have begun operating in Manbij town and eastern Aleppo Governorate in accordance with a road map agreed by the two parties over recent weeks.

Turkey has said the presence of terror forces near its border constitute a threat and has launched military operations and other efforts to rid the region of terrorists.

Arabs account for more than 90 percent of the local population in Manbij.
