Turkish and U.S. military officials have agreed on the implementation of a road map that brings about the withdrawal of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) from the northwestern Syrian city of Manbij in accordance with a political agreement between Ankara and Washington early June.

“In accordance with the Manbij Roadmap and Manbij Security Principles, a series of meetings were held by Turkish and U.S. military representatives at the U.S. European Command in Stuttgart, June 12-13,” read a joint statement made by the Turkish Armed Forces and the U.S. European Command early June 14.

“The U.S. and Turkish military officials who participated in the discussions agreed on a proposed Manbij implementation plan that will be recommended to senior U.S. and Turkish leadership for further discussions,” it read.

The joint statement by the Turkish and American militaries shows that the road map agreed by Çavuşoğlu and Pompeo is functioning well within the timeframe.
