Cavusoglu gave no deadline for any withdrawal of the YPG militia, seen by Ankara as a hostile force allied to PKK Kurdish militants fighting an insurgency on Turkish soil.

"It's quite likely that a Kurdish autonomous region in Syria will emerge, because neither the US nor Russian Federation is categorically opposed to such an entity", Uzgel argued.
Washington has stated its opposition to the Kurdish-led autonomous zones in northern Syria, even as it backs the YPG militarily.
