Turkey, U.S. Agree 'Joint Operation Center' for North Syria

Turkey and the United States have agreed to establish a joint operation center to manage tensions between a U.S.-backed Kurdish militia and Turkish forces in northern Syria, Ankara said Wednesday.

The announcement came after three days of tense negotiations with U.S. officials hoping to forestall a Turkish attack on the Kurdish YPG group, which controls large swathes of northern Syria.

Turkey sees the YPG as a terrorist offshoot of the Kurdish PKK, which has fought a bloody insurgency inside its territory for the past 35 years.

It's actually surprising that Turkey buying a defense system from Russia seems to cause more of a diplomatic problem than this border affair with the Kurds BUT... this border issue does seem to present much more of a present danger.
