Syria Kurds reject 'security zone' under Turkish control

16.01.2019

Syria's Kurds on Wednesday rejected a U.S. proposal for a "security zone" under Turkish control along the Syrian side of the two countries' border.

Senior political leader Aldar Khalil said the Kurds would accept the deployment of UN forces along the separation line between Kurdish fighters and Turkish troops to ward off a threatened offensive.

"Other choices are unacceptable as they infringe on the sovereignty of Syria and the sovereignty of our autonomous region," Khalil told journalists.    (AFP)
