ANKARA - Turkey and the United States have reached "an understanding, not an agreement" over the northern Syrian town of Manbij, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a news conference, Cavusoglu said Ankara sought an agreement with Washington over who will secure Manbij after the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, which Turkey considers a terrorist organization, withdraws from the area.

Cavusoglu said Turkey wanted the understanding with the United States over Manbij, where US troops are stationed, to be a model for all areas controlled by the YPG.
