Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has given a press briefing on a temporary ceasefire deal amid its offensive against Kurdish-led fighters in northern Syria.
It came a day after Mike Pence, the vice president of the United States, said Washington and Ankara have agreed to a ceasefire in Syria.
The ceasefire grants the Kurdish-led forces, that were Washington’s main Syrian ally in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), five days to withdraw from the so-called “safe zone” Turkey wants to establish inside Syria.
