Russia today (RT) reported on the 30th that Erdogan revealed the news in a speech to Turkish lawmakers that day. Rt said the purpose of the joint patrol is to maintain the security of the security zone along the border between Turkey and Syria. The Russian Ministry of defense had previously said that Kurdish forces had left the region through a special safe corridor and then replaced it with Syrian government forces and Russian gendarmes stationed in the region.

Erdogan issued a warning on the same day, although Russia said Kurdish forces had withdrawn from the security zone in the northeast of Syria.

Rt said the Turkish president said that although Ankara received information from Moscow that Kurdish forces had withdrawn from the Turkish Syrian border, he revealed that according to Turkish intelligence, this was not the case in some cases. As a result, he warned that if Kurdish forces do not withdraw or attack Turkish soldiers as promised, Turkish forces will continue to put pressure on them.

Tensions in the region have continued to escalate since Turkey launched the fountain of peace military operation in northern Syria on 9 October. Despite the criticism from the outside world, Turkey insists on clearing the Kurdish armed forces in the region and establishing a 30 kilometer long buffer zone in northern Syria, where more than 3 million Syrian refugees in Turkey will resettle.

On Tuesday, Erdogan and Putin signed a memorandum of understanding on the situation in northern Syria. Russia will assist Kurdish forces to withdraw from the area within the specified time. After that, Turkish and Russian forces will conduct joint patrols in the area 10 kilometers from the East and west of the operation area of the spring of peace excluding kamishli. Some analysts believe that Turkey has taken an important step towards the goal of establishing a security zone, while Russia has further enhanced its voice on Syria and other Middle East issues.
