UN says its ready for coordination in Syria
UN is prepared for "very close" coordination with Turkey on a possible military operation in northern Syria, an official said Monday.
"TURKEY HAS PROVIDED NECESSARY GUARANTEES"
Speaking to reporters, Panos Moumtzis, UN assistant secretary general and Regional Humanitarian Coordinator for the Syria crisis, said Turkey has provided necessary guarantees to UN on humanitarian issues.
Since 2016, Turkey’s Euphrates Shield and Olive Branch operations in northwestern Syria have liberated the region from YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorists, making it possible for Syrians who fled the violence to return home.
Turkey has long decried the threat from terrorists east of the Euphrates in northern Syria, pledging military action to prevent the formation of a "terrorist corridor" there.
