Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Monday he proposed setting up a no-fly zone in northern Syria to the US and Russia, after Ankara-backed fighters pushed the Islamic State (ISIS / Daesh / ISIL / IS) terrorist group from the border area.

“We are working for this region to be declared no-fly zone,” Erdogan said at the G20 meeting in China, referring to the land extending from Jarabulus to Azaz in northern Syria seized from ISIS terrorists.

“This is my proposal to Mr. Putin and Mr. Obama,” he said; AFP reported.
