alluded to Turkey to establish permanent military bases in the safe zone to be established in northern Syria , a Turkish - American format, amid a dispute between Washington and Ankara on the nature of their respective work forces in these areas.
Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar threatened to end cooperation with the United States over the safe area in Syria if Washington resorted to what he called "stalling and delays" on its establishment, according to the newspaper "Ahwal" Turkish and
Akar said: "We will build bases to patrol east Euphrates. It will be common rules with the United States and we want it to be permanent. "
He added that Ankara would continue talks with Washington on the safe area "as long as it is consistent with our goals and objectives."
The Turkish Defense Minister threatened that Ankara will build military bases on its own in the safe area in the event of "procrastination" Washington on the establishment of this region, noting that the number of those bases "will be determined from the situation on the ground."
Ankara appears to be seeking to establish military bases in the safe area of Syria, as it did in northern Iraq, where it has set up more than 20 military bases there.
The Turkish Defense Minister reiterated in his press statements that the goal of his country is "to establish a region with a depth of 30-40 kilometers along the border to ensure the security of our country."
Turkey maintains military bases in Al-Bab, Jarablus, Azaz, and Afrin areas, which are totally under Turkish control, as well as the Turkish army's control of Afrin.
