Turkey's chief of general staff and his US counterpart discussed a safe zone in Syria along Turkey’s border on the sidelines of a NATO conference in Slovenia, the Turkish Defense Ministry said Saturday (Sep. 14).

Yasar Guler and Joseph Dunford held a bilateral meeting in capital Ljubljana where a two-day NATO Military Committee Conference is being held until Sept. 15, the ministry said in a statement.

The Turkish military chief shared Turkey's expectations about the safe zone east of Euphrates in Syria, a recent hot topic between the US and Turkey.

Ankara attaches importance to the safe zone in terms of its fight against YPG/PKK terror groups.

On Aug. 7, Turkish and U.S. military officials agreed to set up a safe zone in northern Syria and develop a peace corridor to facilitate the movement of displaced Syrians who want to return home. They also agreed to establish a joint operations center.
