the world.

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Turkey's decision to launch an attack on eastern Euphrates would be detrimental to the whole region, the head of Iran's presidential office said on Wednesday.

"Our analysis of Turkey's decision to launch an attack on the east of the Euphrates is that this action will be detrimental to the whole region," Vaezi said in an interview with state television on Turkey's decision to launch an operation in Syria.

On the nuclear deal, Waazi said: "The third step of reducing our commitments in the nuclear deal has had a great impact and many countries have contacted us on this step … We hope that other countries have received our serious message from the third step in reducing our commitments in the nuclear deal." .
On the situation in Yemen, Waizi said: "We welcome the ceasefire by the Yemenis, and the Saudis realized that the situation in Yemen will not be resolved through the war … We welcome any move from Saudi Arabia to stop its war on Yemen."

"If Saudi Arabia engages in dialogue with Iran, this is an important step for us and the region," the spokesman said.

The Houthis and the Yemeni government reached an agreement on the release of the prisoners late last year, in the framework of Sweden talks to resolve the Yemeni crisis, but the implementation of the agreement stalled for months, in addition to other agreements on redeployment in Hodeidah and its ports, and the ceasefire agreement in Taiz province, which Living in deteriorating humanitarian conditions.

Fakhruddin Altun, head of the Turkish presidency's liaison office, said the Turkish armed forces and the Free Syrian Army would cross the Syrian border early Wednesday.

"The Turkish army, in cooperation with the Free Syrian Army, will cross the Turkish-Syrian border soon," Fakhruddin Altun said in a tweet on his Twitter account.

"The fighters of the Kurdish People's Units have two options: they can flee or we will stop them from obstructing our efforts to eliminate ISIS," he said.

On Tuesday evening, the Turkish army sent new reinforcements to its units stationed on the Syrian border, according to the Turkish "Anatolia" agency.

Earlier on Monday, the United States began withdrawing its troops from northeastern Syria near the border with Turkey, amid recent preparations for a military operation to clear the territory of Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) active in the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces alliance. In the war on IS, Ankara considers it a terrorist organization and an arm of the PKK.
