Kalin, Bolton discuss Syria safe zone
Turkish Presidential Spokesman Ibrahim Kalin and US national security adviser John Bolton on Friday (August 9) held a phone call to discuss bilateral issues, DS reported.

The two officials reportedly discussed the potential safe zone in Syria, the establishment of a joint operations center to manage the zone and bilateral trade volume.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday that talks between the US and Turkey earlier in the week had led to "important progress" toward establishing a safe zone in northern Syria.

"Pleased that talks between the US & Turkey led to important progress towards establishing a sustainable security mechanism to address our shared security concerns in Northeast Syria," the top US envoy wrote on Twitter.

"Establishing a safe zone would be a big step towards achieving peace & security," he added.

On Wednesday, Turkish military officials and their US counterparts agreed that a safe zone in northern Syria would be a "peace corridor" for displaced Syrians longing to return home.

Also, both sides agreed on the immediate implementation of measures to address Turkey's security concern.

A Joint Operations Center in Turkey to coordinate and manage the establishment of the safe zone was planned during the meeting.
