DAMASCUS -- Syrian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday that the Syrian government rejects the US-Turkish agreement to establish a safe zone in northern Syria, state news agency SANA reported.

A ministry statement branded the United States and Turkey as forces of occupation, saying the agreement, which was reached on Wednesday, constitutes a flagrant violation of the international law and the UN Charter.

The Turkish-US agreement is also considered a "dangerous escalation" that threatens the peace and stability in the region and the world and undermines all efforts to find a way out of the Syrian crisis, the statement added.

"This agreement has exposed the partnership of the US and Turkey in the aggression against Syria," it noted.
