Turkish soldiers stand guard as Kurdish people wait for their relatives who wait near fences on the Syrian border on June 26, 2015 in Suruc, Turkey. Hundreds of Syrians from the region of Kobane were waiting at the fence on the Syria-Turkey border as clashes continued between Kurdish fighters and Islamist jihadists, an AFP photographer reported. Mainly Kurdish Kobane had been re-captured by Kurdish fighters from Islamic State (IS) jihadists in January and some residents had then cautiously returned to the town from their refuge in Turkey.

Moscow, The administration of U.S. President Donald Trump did not consult Russia before announcing a plan to establish safe zones for refugees in Syria, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday.
“No, our American partners did not consult with us. It’s a sovereign decision,” Peskov said on a conference call with reporters.
“It is important that this (the plan) does not exacerbate the situation with refugees, but probably all the consequences ought to be weighed up.”
