The US and Turkey are working together on military plans to clear the Islamic State (IS) group from parts of northern Syria, American officials say.
They said an “Islamic State-free zone” would ensure greater stability along the Syria-Turkish border.
The talks follow a major shift in Turkey’s approach to IS in recent days.
Turkey, which had been reluctant to intervene in Syria, has launched raids against IS and allowed US jets to use a Turkish base.
Turkey? This will be one porous “buffer zone”.
