Turkey accuses US of stalling on Syria 'safe zone' plans

US military officials in Turkey for Syria ‘safe zone’ talks

"Yes, there are some joint patrols but other than that, the steps that have been taken or the steps that are said to be taken are cosmetic steps", he told reporters.

The NATO allies have agreed to establish the so-called "safe zone" along Turkey's southern border and clear the region of Syrian Kurdish YPG fighters.

"The Syrian Arab Republic condemns in the strongest terms the launching of joint patrols by the USA administration and the Turkish regime in the Syrian al-Jazeera region as a flagrant violation of global law and the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic", a Syrian Foreign Ministry official said on Sunday, according to state news agency SANA.

The YPG has been a main U.S. ally in the fight against Islamic State in Syria. "We need to confirm it through our own sources", Ibrahim Kalin said, alluding to Turkish demands that the zone is rid of the PKK/YPG, a terrorist group the United States has sometimes allied itself with.

The Syrian Kurdish fighters were the top US allies in the war against the Islamic State group in Syria.

Cavusoglu said Washington's approach so far had served the Syrian Kurdish YPG forces more than Turkey. US troops on Saturday also conducted patrols with the local Syrian Kurdish-led forces, which annoyed Turkey.

Military officials at the US Central Command and the European Command are scheduled to meet with their Turkish counterparts on Tuesday, the Turkish Defense Ministry said on Twitter.

The minister's comments arrived as two USA armed service officers were visiting Turkey for talks on what Ankara calls "risk-free zone".

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says rifts remain in the way Turkey and the USA envision the zone.

Turkey has carried out several incursions into Syria throughout the country's civil war in an work to suppress the increasing affect of the Kurdish forces.
