Bulletins from several news agencies referred to an initial agreement between Ankara and Washington on a plan for cleansing the areas held by ISIS, near the Turkish borders . Such news surfaced in the aftermath of discussions held between The Turkish president Recep Tayyib Erdogan and his American counterpart, president Barack Obama, along with other officials, such as Secretary of State, John Kerry and Vice president, Joe Biden; during the presence of the Turkish president for attending the Nuclear Safety Summit, whose activities were launched on 31 March, 2016. This was also followed by a visit made by an American military, diplomatic delegation to Ankara , during 4-5, April, 2016, where they met a group of Turkish diplomats and military personnel. The disagreement, however, between Washington and Ankara – as it were- was regarding the body or entity that will replace ISIS in the area between Azaz and Jarablus, in case ISIS were pushed out, taking into consideration the well-known Turkish red line regarding the linkage between the Kurdish districts in Ayen al Arab and Ifreen.
