Tillerson denies US plans to form Syria border force

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said that Washington owed Turkey an explanation over reports that it was creating a 30,000-strong border force in northern Syria, adding that the issue has been “misportrayed”.

“That entire situation has been misportrayed, misdescribed, some people misspoke. We are not creating a border security force at all,” Tillerson told reporters on his way back from giving a speech at Stanford University in California on Wednesday.

According to media reports, Washington is working to establish the border security force with the involvement of Kurdish militias.                                                                                                                          Source : News Agencies
