BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – Turkey will be in full control of the newly proposed safe zone in northern Syria, the spokesperson for the Turkish President, Ibrahim Kalin, said on Tuesday.

“It will be a safe zone not just for Turkey but also for migrants,” Kalın said, asserting that Turkey will have control over the zone.

“Turkey will continue to be a player both in the field and at the table by utilizing politics, diplomacy and power,” Kalın he added.

The Kurdish-led PYD has already criticized this move, saying they do not trust Turkey to provide safety to the people in northern Syria.
