PYD: Abkommen mit syrischem Regime ist unausweichlich
Ein hochrangiger Offizieller in Rojava erklärte, dass ein Deal mit Assad "unausweichlich"sei:
Redur Khalil, a commander in the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces alliance, told AFP that Kurdish authorities and Damascus were bound to reach a deal.
“Reaching a solution between the autonomous administration and the Syrian government is inevitable because our areas are part of Syria,” said Khalil.
Syrian government forces deployed late last month around the key city of Manbij in Aleppo province, after Kurdish forces called for them to arrive.
“Negotiations are ongoing with the government to reach a final formulation for administering the city of Manbij,” Khalil told AFP, adding that talks had shown “positive signs”.
If that leads to a solution that “protects the rights” of Manbij residents, a similar arrangement could be applied to SDF-controlled areas of Deir ez-Zor province, east of the Euphrates River, he said.
The deployment of government forces along the Turkish border could not be ruled out, he added.
Ankara views the SDF’s Kurdish fighters as “terrorists”, in cahoots with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has been fighting Turkish troops since 1984.
“We still have some differences with the central government, which need negotiations with international support,” Khalil said, adding that regime backer Russia could act as a guarantor state.
