ISTANBUL, (Reuters) - Turkish and U.S. military officials reached agreement on a plan for the Syrian city of Manbij at a meeting in Stuttgart this week and decided to present it to the countries' leaders ahead of further talks, the Turkish armed forces said on Thursday.

The two countries said on June 4 they had endorsed a roadmap which envisages the withdrawal from Manbij of the Kurdish YPG militia, seen as a terrorist organization by Ankara.
