'US move on north Syria safe zone is provocative'
DUBAI: A US agreement to set up a safe zone in northern Syria, a close ally of Iran, is "provocative and worrisome", the Iranian foreign ministry was reported to have said by the semi-official Fars news agency.
The United States and Turkey last week agreed to set up a joint operations centre for a proposed zone along Syria's northeast border. "Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi ... said the recent announcements and agreements by
American officials about creating a safe zone in northern Syria are provocative and worrisome," Fars reported.
