US Defense Department has rejected news reports on remarks by America's most senior general over setting up security buffer areas inside Syria, said a spokesperson with the US Embassy in Ankara, the Turkish capital.
TJ Grubisha told the Anadolu Agency on Monday that the Pentagon had denied reports as "fabrication" on Martin Dempsey's words that appeared in several British media outlets, and that the Defense Department had also said a newspaper that ran the story had revised it later.
Public remarks made in London by the chairman of the US chiefs of joint staff have caused a bit of a stir as they appeared on the Turkish press as well.
The news reports had cited Dempsey as saying that Turkey had asked NATO to assume task of setting up such zones rather than individual countries.
