Manbij's roadmap to be cleared on March 19: Çavusoglu
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that they would give a decision on March 19 on what kind of roadmap they would follow for Manbij.
A timetable will be drawn up at the US and Turkiye foreign ministers talks in Washington on March 19 on how to draw a roadmap for withdrawing the PKK/YPG from Manbij and ensuring safety in that area.
"Turkish and US troops will ensure security in Syria's Manbij after YPG/PKK leave the city," Foreign Minister Çavuşoğlu said, adding that Turkiye will carry out an operation if that fails.
"How the lands held by YPG can provide stability and who will be in power to manage? That basic principle depends on the population ratio. YPG is no way to manage," Çavuşoğlu said.
