Turkey urges US to clear Syria 'confusion', says deal possibleA deal with the United States to reduce tensions over the Kurdish-held city of Manbij in Syria is “doable” but requires Washington to clear up confusion in its policy, a top Turkish official said Saturday. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s spokesman Ibrahim Kalin also said a Turkish operation to take the Syrian city of Tal Rifaat was no longer on the agenda after Russian assurances that Kurdish militia were no longer there. The city of Manbij, held by the People’s Protection Units (YPG) Kurdish militia, has become a major headache in relations between NATO allies Turkey and the United States.
