Debate with Mogherini on situation in northern Syria will be held this evening

MEPs will debate the latest developments in northern Syria with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini on Wednesday evening.

MEPs are likely to discuss Turkey’s military intervention in parts of north-east Syria controlled by Kurdish forces, as US troops withdrew from the area.

The Turkish military started operations in that area against Kurdish-led forces. Kurdish militia played a significant role in helping the US defeat the Islamic terrorist group IS in Syria.
