Turkey on Saturday denied Kurdish forces' claim that Ankara is blocking their pullout from a proposed safe zone along the border under a US-brokered agreement.

"YPG is disseminating false information to sabotage the Turkey-US agreement," a senior official told AFP, referring to Kutherdish People's Protection Units (YPG) deemed by Ankara as a terrorist group linked to outlawed Kurdish militants in Turkey. (AFP)
