Turkey to halt Syria offensive, let Kurdish forces withdraw

AFP, Ankara

Turkey has agreed to suspend its Syria offensive for five days and will end the assault if Kurdish-led forces withdraw from a safe zone away from the border, US Vice President Mike Pence and Turkish officials said yesterday.

Turkey and Syrian rebel proxies began an offensive in northern Syria last week against Kurdish fighters who Ankara brands terrorists, despite international concern over regional stability and civilian deaths.
Turkey's operation "will be halted entirely on completion" of the pullout, Pence told reporters after talks with Turkish officials in Ankara.
Pence said the US would work with the Kurdish fighters "to facilitate an orderly withdrawal in the next 120 hours."
He said: "Let me say that's already begun. The demarcation line, 20 miles south of the border."
