    A senior US official in the White House denounced allegations of ethnic cleansing done by Turkey in northeastern Syria, saying his country had found no evidence for these allegations.

    The official, who preferred to remain anonymous, expressed gratitude for the Turkish-US agreement in northern Syria.

    "We are eagerly awaiting good relations with NATO ally Turkey"." We also want to continue our good relations with the Kurds, and we will work with our partners in the region to protect civilians and religious minorities."

    He refered that US is leaving toops to protest oilfields.
    Turkey on Oct. 9 launched Operation Peace Spring to eliminate the PKK's Syrian offshoot, the People's Protection Units (YPG) from northern Syria in order to secure Turkey's borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees and ensure Syria's territorial integrity.
