Timetable for stabilizing Manbij set for 90 days — Bozdag

Turkey?’s deputy prime minister on Wednesday said the timetable reached with the U.S. for ridding terrorists and establishing stability in Manbij, Syria is very clear.

“There is a very clear timetable. Ninety days of it were planned clearly, what and when will be done, all were designated,” Bekir Bozdag said in the central Yogzat province, appearing on television.

The roadmap on Manbij was announced after a meeting in Washington on Monday between Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The deal focuses on the withdrawal of the PKK-affiliated YPG terror group from the northern Syrian city and stability in the region.

Bozdag said not only Manbij but also the area east of the Euphrates River will also be cleared of YPG/PKK.
