The Turkish president's comments depict the country's increasing confidence to press its military operation against the Kurdish militants in the Afrin region to a successful conclusion after some 50 days of intense fighting.
The latest announcement comes amid reports of numerous gains made by the Turkish military and allied Free Syrian Army (FSA) forces, with the government stating that over 3,000 YPG fighters have been neutralised since the beginning of the operation.

"To date 850 square kilometers have been taken under our control".
The operation is being carried out under the framework of Turkey's rights based on worldwide law, UN Security Council resolutions, its self-defence rights under the UN charter and respect for Syria's territorial integrity, it said.
Erdogan said in the initial phase 2,000 square kilometres (772.2 square miles) will be taken into control.
