(Worthy News) - Germany should leverage its U.N. Security Council membership to push for an “internationally-controlled security zone” in Syria, the country’s defense minister said on Monday.
Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, who is also head of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic (CDU) party, said such a zone would stabilize the region and ensure Syrian refugees now housed in Turkey return on a voluntary basis.
“My recommendation is that we establish an internationally-controlled security zone, in cooperation with Turkey and Russia,” she said, adding that the move would also ensure that Turkey’s military offensive does not result in a permanent occupation of northeastern Syria.
