ANKARA (Reuters) - Plans for a roadmap in Syria’s Manbij may be implemented before the end of the summer if Turkey and the United States reach an agreement, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday.

Speaking at an interview with broadcaster AHaber, Cavusoglu said U.S. and Turkish forces would control the Manbij region until a new administration was formed under the understanding reached with Washington.
