Kurdish militia fighters in northern Syria will remain a target for Turkish forces as long as they are positioned west of the Euphrates river, Turkey's presidential spokesman said on Wednesday.

Turkey has not agreed any truce with Kurdish militias in Syria, spokesman Ibrahim Kalin told a news conference. He said President Tayyip Erdogan was concerned by increasing attacks near the Syrian city of Aleppo and was making diplomatic efforts to achieve a ceasefire there.
