Earlier this month Turkish and U.S. military officials agreed on the implementation of a road map for the withdrawal of the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) from Manbij, in accordance with a political agreement between Ankara and Washington in early June.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday confirmed Turkish Armed Forces in cooperation with U.S. troops had begun patrolling the northern Syrian city of Manbij.

Erdogan’s remarks came during his ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party’s election rallies in the Black Sea province of Samsun and Ordu.

“We are cleaning Manbij [from terrorists]. PYD/YPG are leaving the area and we achieved this via diplomatic means,” Erdogan said.

Recalling Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu’s talks with his American counterpart in the U.S. on June 4, he said the U.S. started to proceed east of the Euphrates as a result of the meeting.

“We are working together with Russia and Iran in the west [of Euphrates],” he added.

Erdogan said the agreement reached with the U.S. was being executed step by step.
