United States and Turkey Agree to Ceasefire

Published by Matt Fishman on

After “more than five hours of negotiations with President Erdogan” “the United States and Turkey have agreed to a ceasefire in Syria.” The agreement will temporarily pause Turkey’s ongoing military operations in Northern Syria. Turkey will pause “military operations for 120 hours while the United States facilitates the withdrawal of YPG from the affected areas and the safe zone.” In exchange, the United States “agrees not to pursue further imposition of sanctions” and upon the permanent halting of Turkey’s military operation all sanctions in place “shall be lifted”. Vice President Pence says, “once that is completed, Turkey has agreed to a permanent cease fire.”
