Syrian Kurdish YPG fighters will shortly begin leave Manbij

ISTANBUL (Reuters) – Syrian Kurdish YPG fighters will begin leaving northern Syria’s Manbij region as of July 4, following a month of preparations, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Thursday.

He made the comments in an interview with private broadcaster CNN Turk. Cavusoglu said the roadmap for a solution in Manbij agreed upon by the United States and Turkey is being implemented fully.

Earlier this month Turkey and the United States endorsed a tentative deal, in which the Kurdish YPG militia would withdraw from Manbij and Turkish and U.S. forces would jointly maintain security and stability there.
