"Works are ongoing without allowing delay, to establish the Joint Operations Center and the commencement of activities, as soon as possible", the ministry stressed.

However, there have been no clear details so far regarding the size of the zone and the command structure of joint patrols that would be conducted there.

On Aug. 7, Turkish and US military officials agreed to set up a safe zone and develop a peace corridor to facilitate the movement of displaced Syrians, who are longing to return to their homes.

Syria's war, which started in 2011, has killed hundreds of thousands of Syrians and created over 5.6 million refugees, more than half of whom are seeking shelter in Turkey.

The Pentagon on Wednesday said the safe zone agreement between the USA and Turkey will be implemented gradually, with some operations beginning soon.

The news agency reported earlier that Akar and the Turkish military's chief of staff Yasar Guler, along with other senior military commanders, inspected troops at the southeastern city of Sanliurfa in preparation for the joint operations centre.

Turkey has repeatedly threatened to launch an assault east of the Euphrates river against the YPG, which it says is a "terrorist" offshoot of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers´ Party (PKK), which has waged an insurgency inside Turkey since 1984.But Washington has worked closely with the YPG in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) group.

Turkey, the USA and the European Union recognise the PKK as a terrorist organisation.

Their visit came one day after a USA military delegation visited the military post to examine the planned Joint Operations Center at the army frontier.

The joint operations center will help organize a "safe zone" in northern Syria aimed at creating a buffer between the Turkish border and areas controlled by the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in northern Syria. However, the regime, with Moscow's backing, has violated the de-escalation zone with impunity.
