The Turkish Foreign Minister says the US needs to withdraw from Syria’s Manbij city immediately. Mevlut Chavushoglu added that Washington has to take concrete steps to end its support for Syria’s Kurdish militants known as the Y-P-G. Earlier on Saturday, Ankara said it was informed of the U-S recent decision not to provide any more weapons to the group. Turkey launched an offensive against the Syrian Kurdish militants last Saturday. The onslaught has strained ties between Turkey and the U-S, with Ankara accusing Washington of supporting the Y-P-G. The Turkish president on Friday said his country plans to extend its offensive in northern Syria to the city of Manbij where the U-S forces have been deployed.
