News Service Yeni Şafak, Reuters

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Monday urged fellow NATO countries to support Turkey's military operation, which was launched last week against the Syrian branch of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, the PYD, in northern Syria.

Speaking to reporters before traveling to Azerbaijan, Erdoğan said Turkey would implement its plans for the northern Syrian town of Manbij and settle Arabs there. He also said a U.S. move to withdraw some 1,000 troops from northern Syria was a positive step.

Erdoğan added that does not think any problems will emerge in Syria's Kobani after a Syrian army deployment is executed along the border, adding that Russia's Vladimir Putin had shown a "positive approach."
