Turkish FM sources: FSA will nominate who to train, Turkey and US will have final say

According to sources from Turkey's Foreign Ministry talks with the U.S. use of military bases in Turkey are on-going and if the goals correlate there will be a planning effort. It also announced that Turkey has trained 230 Peshmerga forces and will train up to 2000 Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters per year.

The FSA will nominate members to be trained while the U.S. and Turkey will have the final say of who will ultimately be trained. The train-equip agreement would see that Turkey will train the selected FSA fighters while the U.S. will equip.
