Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated that Turkey would stop offensive against Syria in case Kurdish fighters lay down arms and get out of the planned "safe" zone. Reuters reported that.

According to Erdogan, the quickest decision for the Kurdish militaries would be to bury the hatchet and retreat from the area. He also noted that the operation would be ended when "the safe zone" would be created. Turkey does not discuss other variants.

Turkish President warned that if these conditions were not observed, any country would not be able to terminate the offensive against Syria.

As it was reported earlier, Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticized NATO partners for their refusal to support Turkish military operation in Syria.

"Supposedly, NATO members should fight against terrorism, however, they do not take an active position in this issue," Erdogan said.

Also, Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel and President of France Emmanuel Macron urged Turkey to stop attacking Syria.
