BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan gave his first comments about the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) deployment to the areas controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northern Syria.

According to the Arabic-language version of the Sputnik News Agency, the Turkish President said that he did not believe there would be any problems with the Syrian Army taking control of Kobani (var. ‘Ayn Al-‘Arab) or any other area along the border.

Furthermore, Erdogan said his talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin about the situation in northern Syria were ‘positive’.

In regards to Operation Peace Spring, Erdogan said “when the city of Manbij is liberated, it will be returned to its real owners.”

Since launching Operation Peace Spring, the Turkish Armed Forces and their militant allies have captured several areas in northern Syria, including the city of Tal Abyad.

Currently, the Turkish Armed Forces are engaged in a fierce battle with the Syrian Democratic Forces for control of Ras Al-‘Ayn, a city in the northwestern countryside of the Al-Hasakah.
