The European Union and Turkey set aside growing tensions by reaching an agreement to control the flow of refugees through the Aegean Sea, in a large-scale people-moving operation that was immediately denounced as impractical and legally suspect. Syrian refugees who make it to Greece will be sent back to Turkey and others will be shipped from Turkish camps to Europe under a deal that risks being overwhelmed by the sheer volume of humanity on the run. Greece's struggle to process asylum applications and the threat that human traffickers will find other weak points in Europe's porous borders also loomed as major obstacles to making the deal work. Failure to contain the flow will test the sustainability of the EU's passport-free travel area and will put further pressure on member states already being assailed by a wave of populist sentiment stoked by anti-immigration political parties. "I have no illusions that further setbacks will still go with what we've decided today," German Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters on Friday after the EU-Turkey summit in Brussels. "There are enormous logistical challenges that we have to tackle. But I believe that we've come to an accord that entails an element of irreversibility." The EU said it would roll out the welcome mat for an initial 72,000 Syrians, a quota that at the current pace would be exhausted by late May. Both sides set Sunday as the start date, hoping to deter refugees in Turkey from setting out for the Greek coast. More»

US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter on Thursday praised the fighting of Kurdish groups in Syria that have declared a federal region in areas of the country under their control. The Kurds "have proven to be excellent partners of ours on the ground in fighting ISIL," Carter said, using a term for the Islamic State group in testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee. "We are grateful for that, and we intend to continue to do that, recognizing the complexities of their regional role." He spoke the same day Syria's Kurds declared a de facto federal region in areas under their control in the north of the conflict-riven country, a move the United States opposes. Kurdish groups say declaring a federal region along Syria's northern border with Turkey is aimed only at formalizing a semiautonomous zone they have already established during five years of war and create a model for decentralized government across Syria. But Washington believes any Syrian federalism should develop from United Nations-sponsored talks over a political settlement of the conflict currently underway in Geneva. However, none of the groups representing the Kurdish minority are participating in the talks because of opposition from Turkey. The Syrian government and the main Arab-led opposition group oppose federalism in Syria. So does Turkey, which fears Kurds' ambitions in Syria are fuelling Kurdish separatism at home. Kurds have played a crucial role in the US-led fight against the Islamic State group in Syria, providing the backbone of the forces that have pushed back the jihadist group in the country's northeast. The Kurds play a dominant role in the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDS), an Arab-Syrian coalition the United States supports. However, the Pentagon believes more Arab fighters will join the group. More»

Kurdish-controlled areas of northern Syria are expected to declare a federal system on Wednesday, a Syrian Kurdish official said. The announcement would mean “widening the framework of self-administration which the Kurds and others have formed,” said Idris Nassan, an official in the foreign affairs directorate of Kobani, one of three autonomous areas set up by Kurdish groups two years ago, speaking to Reuters.

The Arab League welcomed Russia's decision to withdraw its troops from Syria, saying Wednesday the move would help U.N.-mediated talks to end the country's war. President Vladimir Putin unexpectedly announced on Monday that most Russian forces would leave Syria, more than five months after they started air strikes to bolster President Bashar al-Assad. A steady stream of warplanes has flown home since then. Russia has insisted its forces targeted Islamic State and other jihadists, but the West has accused Moscow of also hitting civilians and other opposition forces that negotiators hope will agree to a future settlement. "The Russian announcement... represents a positive and important step towards fostering efforts ... for the success of the Geneva negotiations taking place under the auspices of the United Nations and for stabilising the truce," Arab League secretary-general Nabil al-Araby said in a statement. The Syrian government and the Western-backed opposition are holding U.N.-mediated peace talks in Geneva as part of a diplomatic push launched with U.S.-Russian support to end the five-year-old conflict.

Britain could be set to deploy 1,000 troops as part of a 6,000-strong international force in Libya, the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee said Tuesday. The committee said in a letter to Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond that it had heard on a visit to Egypt and Tunisia this month that "the UK plans to contribute 1,000 ground troops to a 6,000-strong international force which will be deployed to Libya in the near future". Western countries have agreed that military action is needed to dislodge the Islamic State group from Libya, but world powers have said they want a national unity government installed to request help before formally intervening.

The German government has approved several arms export deals with countries in the Middle East, including delivery of 23 Airbus helicopters to Saudi Arabia, according to an Economy Ministry letter seen by Reuters on Monday. Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel has vowed to be much more cautious in licensing arms exports, unnerving Germany's sizeable defence industry and signaling a change in policy from the previous coalition government under which sales rose. However, in a letter to lawmakers in the Bundestag lower house of parliament's economy committee, Gabriel said the government's Federal Security Council had also approved a deal by Heckler & Koch to deliver 660 machine guns, 660 additional gun barrels and 550 sub-machine guns to Oman.

President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia on Monday ordered the withdrawal of the “main part” of Russian forces in Syria, a surprise move that reflected what he called the Kremlin’s achievement of nearly all its objectives in the war-torn country. The news upended expectations in Western capitals and among ordinary Syrians, setting off fevered speculation about Russia’s intentions, much as Mr. Putin’s unexpected military plunge into the Syrian battlefield five months ago changed the course of the war. Perhaps the most urgent questions were how the move would affect the war’s outcome and what it meant for President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, whose rule had been increasingly threatened by a string of military losses before Russian forces backed him up. The Russian decision could signal a new confidence in Mr. Assad’s stability or an effort to pressure him to negotiate with his political adversaries — or both. More»

Air strikes by 11 Turkish warplanes in northern Iraq on Monday are believed to have killed 45 Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants, the armed forces said in a statement on Tuesday. The military said the strikes by F-16 and F-4 jets, in the Qandil mountain area where the PKK has its main bases, also destroyed two weapons depots and two Katyusha rocket positions. More»
