UN Security Council to decide on Germany’s offer to create safe zone in Syria

The UN Security Council is the body to consider whether Germany’s proposal to establish an international security zone in northern Syria under United Nations auspices is accpetable, spokesperson Farhan Haq said, AZVision.az reports citing Sputnik.

"Any such decision would have to be considered by member states, notably the Security Council," Haq said on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, German Defence Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer expanded on her proposal to create an international security zone in northern Syria, saying such a zone should be set up under the aegis of the United Nations.

Kramp-Karrenbauer first proposed creating an internationally monitored safe zone along the Syrian northern border on Monday to protect the mostly-Kurdish population in the area against the Turkish military operation that was launched on 9 October.
