BEIRUT (Reuters) – The Syrian Democratic Forces said on Wednesday it was ready to help create a safe zone mentioned by U.S. President Donald Trump under “international guarantees” and without “foreign intervention” in north and east Syria.

The U.S.-backed SDF, led by the Kurdish YPG militia, said in a statement it hoped to reach agreements with neighbouring Turkey to ensure stability at the border region.
